The hearing occurred hours after the singer was charged with one felony count of furnishing a controlled substance. He could face up to four years in prison if convicted.

Berk said the singer, whose real name is Thomas DeCarlo Callaway, was pleased prosecutors declined to pursue a rape charge against him.

She declined comment on the drug-related charge.

Green's bail was set at $30,000 and his case is due back in court on Nov. 20.

Green is the Grammy-winning singer of the hit "Forget You" and performed as part of the duo Gnarls Barkley. He appears as a judge onNBC's "The Voice" competition show.
