R&B singer Chris Brown is out of jail after being locked up for his recent probation violation, but he’s expected to head back to court soon to find out his fate regarding the assault that took place in DC. However, new reports suggest Chris is expected to avoid more jail time thanks to a plea deal.
The New York Daily News reports:
Chris Brown is close to taking a no-jail plea deal in his Washington assault case, a source told the Daily News Tuesday.
The Grammy-winning singer is expected to appear in court in the nation’s capital Wednesday and enter a type of no-contest plea called an Alford plea, the source said.
The plea would allow Brown, 25, to maintain his innocence while admitting prosecutors have sufficient evidence to convict him for the alleged sidewalk smackdown last October.
UPDATE: Chris rejected the plea deal and the singer has decided to head to trial over the DC assault. As a result, he could end up getting more jail time if he’s found guilty. The trial is in September.
Chris was close to copping a plea but the deal fell apart because the prosecutor and Chris’ lawyer, Mark Geragos, couldn’t agree on a statement of fact about the events leading to the alleged assault.
Chris has said all along … he didn’t attack the alleged victim last year outside a hotel.
If Chris had pled guilty to assault, he would not have to serve any additional time in jail. Now it looks like he’s going to trial so jail is on the line again.
So he will avoid jail now just to get in more trouble next month?
Sadly you have a point.
Ok Chris. Now stay your grown a-s out of trouble from here on out.
Chris needs to be either in the gym (he looks a mess), studio, or sitting his ass in the house. Once again he has a chance don’t blow it.
I want to believe that this will be the end of Chris’ problems but I’m just not optimistic.
Good for him. But if he hasn’t changed him mindset about who he lets in his circle and hasn’t gotten his anger issues under control, there will be more court appointments and jail time in his future.
The kid is talented…no doubt.. But that talent is overshadowed by the stupid things he chooses to do.. He does good with his charity especially with the kids but they are always going to report on the bad. He needs to get it together before it’s too late.
This won’t matter if he’s only going to get in more trouble later. Chris really needs to take some time and get his anger issues under control.
Chris lacks maturity and he’s been enabled by his mom his whole life so expect more f-ck ups out of him.
Well if his IG activity is any indication, I think his legal problems are far from over. He’s still very childish.
The sad thing is Chris finally got another hit but couldn’t even enjoy it because was in jail while it was blowing up on the charts!
He needs to go back to jail. He wasn’t in there long enough and he is still too self entitled.
And the enabling continues.
Chris keeps his lawyer busy.
So he gets another chance. I hope he doesn’t mess up again.
I’m still rooting for Chris.
But his bodyguard was already found guilty. It’s not looking good for Chris.
Uh oh! I don’t know if this was the right decision.
His lawyer is a beast. He knows what he’s doing.
He may end up being saved again by his lawyer.
Damn it’s exhausting trying to keep up with this man’s legal problems.
So I guess he wants to go back to jail.
