Judge Won’t Let Chris Brown Out Of Custody

The legal troubles for singer Chris Brown are far from over. Brown’s assault case is going forward after a judge in Washington, DC rejected a request to dismiss.

Lawyers for the Grammy award winning singer had argued the case should be dismissed because prosecutors abused the grand jury process to prepare for trial. Brown’s lawyer, Mark Geragos, said prosecutors used the grand jury to “freeze” the testimony of the alleged victim in the case, a man who says Brown and his bodyguard punched him outside a Washington hotel in October.

Geragos called the incident “the most investigated misdemeanor of all time.”

But Judge Patricia Wynn agreed with prosecutors that they had a right to use the grand jury to assess the strength of their case. “I am persuaded that there was no abuse,” Wynn said.

Brown and his bodyguard are scheduled to go to trial on April 17. A judge will hear the case, not a jury.

The U.S. Marshals Service is in the process of transporting Brown to Washington and he was not present at Monday morning’s hearing.

At the time of the alleged assault in Washington, Brown was on probation in California for a 2009 attack on his then-girlfriend, Rihanna. Soon after his arrest in Washington he entered rehab for anger management treatment, but was jailed in mid-March after violating the facility’s rules. If convicted in the Washington case, Brown could face additional penalties, including time behind bars, under the terms of a court order in the Rihanna case.

Brown’s lawyers and government prosecutors are expected to return to court Monday afternoon for an additional hearing. Issues to be discussed include whether Brown and his bodyguard, Christopher Hollosy, should be tried separately, which their lawyers want. Prosecutors, meanwhile, want the judge to bar Brown from claiming self-defense.

  1. Throw away the key; clean up the house he trashed in the hills of Hollywood, and outlaw him and all the other quassi-talents unleashed by the industry. YUCK.

  4. Brotha Chris needs to view The BlackMan(State of Emergency) on Youtube, this will help him with discipline in his life. Peace!

  5. Awww. Enough is enough. Let this guy out of jail and let him ge back to entertaining the young folks. The judge is just being mean. Turn him loose.

  8. Lindsey Lohan…has done worse things!!! She never goes to jail

  9. I'm sorry but if he allowed him to be released and his issues aren't properly addressed and he hurt himself or others then everyone would have a lot too say about that as well..

  10. An fascinating discussion may be worth comment. I feel you need to write on this topic, it may possibly surely be a taboo subject but generally people are not enough to dicuss on such topics. To a higher. Cheers

  11. This duo is also of the monks of the crystal, the repair is very profound, but he cares about is the two body costumes.

  12. Our own chaga mushroom comes with a schokohutige, consistent, charcoal-like arrival, a complete lot of dissimilar to the style of the regular mushroom. Chaga Tincture
