Chris Brown is of course facing jail time yet again because of the recent charges he picked up from a hit and run. Considering he’s still on probation for assaulting Rihanna in 2009 on the night of the Grammys, jail is a serious possibility for the R&B singer. Chris still maintains that he didn’t commit a crime or do anything wrong. Even the woman who originally claimed Chris didn’t hand over any information is now saying she doesn’t want to press charges, but Chris still has to go to court to see if he will be charged for violating his probation. However, Chris’ attorney claims he fully expects the charges to be dropped and for Chris to serve absolutely no jail time. The LA Times reports:

After having two misdemeanor charges dropped in connection with a recent hit-and-run charge, Chris Brown’s attorney said he expects the criminal case against the singer to be dismissed.

Prosecutors dismissed misdemeanor charges of driving without a license or insurance Tuesday, which leaves the hit-and-run charge.

Brown’s attorney, Mark Geragos, entered a not guilty plea on his behalf.

The R&B star still has to show up to a sheriff’s station to be formally booked on the hit-and-run charge. He has until Aug. 6 to do so, but Geragos and a rep for Brown said he plans on doing so in the next few days.


The attorney also tells the publication he feels Chris is being unfairly targeted:

“It’s unfortunate. I’ve been around him for five years. I consider him as close to me as I do my own son; he’s a special young man. It’s unfortunate this stuff swirls around him.”


  1. He ain’t going to jail. Celebrities rarely end up behind bars even when they deserve it.

  2. Well if he doesn’t go this time, I’m sure they will keep trying to put him in there. That’s why he needs to sit his a-s down somewhere and chill.

  3. He better hope he’s right. They want Chris and they won’t stop unit they get him in somebody’s prison. That’s why he has to be smarter. Stay out of trouble and watch who you call your friends Chris.

  4. If he gets off again, this time he needs to calm down and stop running with all those knucklehead boys he calls friends.
