Chris Brown's finery didn't get him off the hook today.

Wearing a white jacket over a black shirt, tie and pants, the nattily dressed singer appeared with his attorney in court Monday, where a judge set a preliminary hearing for July 15 to determine whether they should move forward with a probation-violation accusation stemming from his 2009 assault case.

Brown was ordered to attend the 2 p.m. court date.

The L.A. County District Attorney's Office has accused the Grammy winner of providing shoddy documentation concerning the 180 hours of community labor he supposedly completed as part of his sentence for assaulting Rihanna. Per the current terms of his sentence, he is on probation until next summer.

According to KTLA-TV, prosecutors were expected to inform the judge today whether they had resolved the matter with Brown or wanted to proceed with their accusations.

Today's hearing was a continuance from two months ago to allow the court to review new discovery materials.
