LOS ANGELES — A judge in Los Angeles has denied a request to release R&B singer Chris Brown from custody while he awaits trial on an assault charge in Washington, D.C.

Superior Court Judge Victor Greenberg denied a request Wednesday by Brown’s lawyer to release the Grammy-winner from custody either on bail or his own recognizance. The singer has been jailed since mid-March on a no-bail warrant after he was expelled from a court-ordered rehab program.

Brown’s bodyguard has been convicted of assaulting a man in Washington, and Brown’s trial has been delayed until at least June. He remains under court supervision in Los Angeles for his 2009 attack on then-girlfriend Rihanna.

The singer’s attorney, Bob Kalunian, requested Brown’s release, but Greenberg said there was no change in circumstances that warrants his release.
