Chris Brown Rejects Plea Deal In Assault Case, Opts For Trial
[GlobalGrind] Chris Brown isn’t going down like that.
The singer rejected a plea deal in his Washington D.C. assault case that stemmed from an altercation with a guy outside of his hotel in October. That means Breezy will be going to trial.
According to TMZ:
The prosecutor revealed in court they had offered Brown a deal — reducing the charge to simple assault (he currently faces misdemeanor assault which carries a more severe penalty), but Brown’s lawyer, Mark Geragos – who was also in court — rejected it … and we think we know why.
Law enforcement sources tell us … they had combed the area looking for surveillance video capturing the run-in. For a long, long time they said they had nothing. Now they seem to be singing a different tune, but haven’t turned the video over to Geragos.
Geragos — who believes his client did nothing wrong — is eager to see the video before cutting any kind of deal.
