After several attempts by his attorney, Mark Geragos, to get his Washington D.C. case dismissed, Chris Brown will now stand trial over assault charges.
In his latest effort, Geragos argued that prosecutors used the grand jury to "freeze" the testimony of the alleged victim and claimed the incident is "the most investigated misdemeanor of all time."
On Monday (April 7), Judge Patricia Wynn saw differently and ruled in favor of the prosecution citing: "I am persuaded that there was no abuse."
As previously reported, Brown was slapped with assault charges after allegedly breaking Parker Adams' nose when he tried to insert himself in a photograph that the R&B singer was taking with two female fans outside the W Hotel in Washington D.C. last October (2013).
Brown and his bodyguard Chris Hollosy will have separate trials (Hollosy on April 17th and Brown after), so Hollosy can testify on Brown’s behalf.
Brown faces a maximum of six months in jail and $1,000 fine. Additionally, he also faces another four years in jail in California as a result of violating the terms of his probation, stemming from his assault on Rihanna in 2009.[WENN]
