Chris Brown's Washington, DC Assault Trial to Be Delayed Until June
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 04.23.2014



Chris Brown's trial on assault charges in Washington, DC has been pushed out and may not begin for a full year. CNN reports that Brown's trial was delayed until his bodyguard's conviction in the same incident is finished with its appeal. Prosecutors declined to great Christopher Hollosy immunity from his conviction in order to testify and as Hollosy is expected to be called as a witness for Brown, the singer's trial must be delayed until after the appeal is finished. That could take as long as a year.

The site reports that a judge in Los Angeles refused a request to free Brown from custody in order to make his own way back across the country. Instead he will be accompanied by US marshals by plane, similar to how he was transported to Washington in the first place.

Hallosy and Brown were both charged with assault after allegedly attacking a man who tried to photobomb them. Brown's probation in his 2009 domestic assault of Rihanna was revoked butt he was allowed to enter anger management rehab instead of going to jail. He was kicked out of the rehab program due to rules violations and was thrown in jail as a result.

Brown's lawyer Mark Garagos said earlier today in Washington, "I think it's a little over the top to have him in custody on this misdemeanor when everybody saw the bodyguard's trial and which was nothing more than a bloody nose. And you have got the bodyguard who was convicted and who readily admitted he was the one who did the punching. So all of this is much ado about nothing."

However, the ADA in Los Angeles disagreed and said she strenuously opposed releasing Brown. She said that his case has "gotten worse" since he was jailed and that the judge who convicted Hollosy concluded that Brown was "the initial aggressor."
