LOS ANGELES (AP) - A California judge has orderedChris Brownto remain in an anger-management rehab program and told the pop singer to return to court in two months.

The judge on Friday scheduled Brown's next hearing for April 23. That would come after what's expected to be a brief assault trial in Washington earlier that month.

Prosecutors have asked that Brown be sent to jail for violating probation with his October arrest in Washington. In that incident, Brown and his bodyguard are accused of punching a man and breaking his nose outside a hotel.

Brown is on probation for his 2009 attack on then-girlfriend,Rihanna.

Brown's attorneys have asked the judge to await the outcome of the Washington case before hearing evidence on whether Brown should go to jail.
