Either the victim in Chris Brown's Washington, D.C. case isn't taking a payoff or prosecutors are not trying to let the Grammy winner walk so easily. Nonetheless, it seems that Brown will have to stand trial unless his lawyer, Mark Geragos, can pull something out of his magic box.
As we last reported via TMZ, Geragos was said to be speaking with the D.C. assault victim's lawyer, and the two were working out a civil settlement so his client could drop the assault case against Brown. Since no news of a deal was finalized, it seems Geragos is looking for other options.
On Wednesday (Mar 26), Brown’s legal team filed a motion to have the case dismissed, citing prosecutors’ misuse of the grand jury process to prepare for the trial.
Brown is currently sitting in a California jail after being kicked out of a court-ordered stay at a Malibu rehabilitation center last month.
A court date is set for April 17 for the assault case, and on Wednesday (Mar 27) prosecutors filed legal papers asking for Brown to be moved from a Los Angeles jail to Washington, D.C. in time for the trial.
