Chris Brown had a hearing on Monday and his lawyer was trying to get his assault case dropped due to “prosecutors’ misconduct”. Brown’s lawyer was unsuccessful as reports claim the R&B singer will remain locked up in a Washington, DC jail until his assault trial later this month.
According to reports, Chris’ “Con Air” flight landed in the D.C. area and was sent straight to a local jail and will remain there until later on this month.
“The singer’s “Con Air” flight landed in the D.C. area, and he was escorted by U.S. marshals to a local jail where he will be locked up until his assault trial later this month, according to a Marshals Service spokesman. He had been chained at his ankles, waist and arms much of the time since marshals took him into custody from the Los Angeles County sheriff last Wednesday.” (CNN)
Brown’s lawyer tried to convince the judge that his assault charge should get dropped at a hearing on Monday, but the judge was not having it.
“Brown’s lawyer failed to convince a judge at a hearing Monday that his assault charge in Washington should be dropped because of prosecutors’ misconduct. Judge Patricia Wynn rejected the argument by Mark Geragos that the U.S. attorneys abused the grand jury process in preparation for Brown’s trial. The singer and his bodyguard, Christopher Hollosy, are charged with hitting a man on a sidewalk just blocks from the White House in October.” (CNN)
