Chris Brown is home, but he may see some jail time.
Brown, 24, refused a plea deal that was given to him in a D.C. courtroom on Wednesday, June 25th, which sets him to a trial date that may send him back to jail.
The proposed deal terms were that Brown would plea guilty to misdemeanor assault charges in exchange for time served, with no additional jail time and no probation. After hours of negotiation, the deal went sour just hours before Wednesday’s court hearing. Brown turned down the plea deal when attorney’s couldn’t agree on what he would acknowledge happened on the day of the scuffle, which lead to his arrest.
Brown’s attorney, Mark Geragos, addressed the situation outside of the courtroom in front of a media pool. Geragos says that “they wanted him to read from a script that wasn’t true.” He went on saying “If they want a trial, that’s what they’ll get.”
Now Brown will be heading to trial, which is set for September 8th, to defend himself against the assault allegations against Parker Adams. Adams, a fan, says he was hit when he tried to take a selfie with Brown and two women in front of a hotel on October 27th, 2013. Both Brown and his bodyguard, Christopher Hollosy, were both arrested for the alleged assault. Hollosy also appeared in court with Brown on Wednesday. He was convicted of misdemeanor assault back in April, but has not been sentenced as of yet.
We wish the best for Brown. He just came to see sunlight that may dim very soon.
