Los Angeles Judge: Jailed Chris Brown Isn’t Going Anywhere
Sheesh…the stars are not aligning for R&B baddie Chris Brown.
As it appears at press time, the bruisin’ crooner will celebrate his 25th birthday in the Los Angeles County lockup. The earliest possible date Brown can expect to be released from jail will be in June, when his assault trial in Washington DC is set to begin.
Chris is due to stand trial for misdemeanor assault charges after allegedly hitting Parker Adams and breaking his nose during a fight outside Washington’s upscale W Hotel last October. The fight violated the terms of Brown’s probation for his 2009 arrest for beating up his then girlfriend, superstar singer Rihanna.
Chris has been in police custody since last month, when he was kicked out of a California rehab facility where he was receiving treatment for anger management issues. In a Los Angeles courtroom Wednesday, celebrity lawman Mark Geragos appealed for his famous client to be allowed out of prison until the start of his trial in the Nation’s Capital, but Judge Victor Greenberg denied the request until a probation revocation hearing takes place on May 1.
Chris’ bodyguard, Christopher Hollosy, was convicted for assaulting Adams on Monday. He’ll be sentenced in June and faces a maximum of six months in jail and a $1,000 fine. Hollosy was originally scheduled to testify on Breezy’s behalf, after his conviction, however, he decided he would not testify unless prosecutors offered him immunity.
If convicted in the assault case, Chris faces a maximum of six months in jail and $1,000 fine. Additionally, he faces up to four more years in jail as a result of violating the terms of his probation.
