R&B singer/actor Chris Brown was arraigned at a Los Angeles area court Thursday afternoon. Appearing alongside attorney Mark Geragos, Brown, wearing a grey suit, remained mostly silent except when acknowledging the judge with a “yes,” was granted a continuance until April 6. Admonished by the judge who told Brown “you are not to annoy, harass, molest, threaten or use force or violence against anyone,” Browns seemed to nod in agreement. While sources say the arraignment was normal, there was one development — Rihanna’s official decision to decline a “no contact order” ! Close to the end of the session, the judge asked if the singer, named as Robyn F in court documents, had a “no contact order request” and authorities replied “Miss Fenty does not request such an order” ! Brown’s arraignment, completed within a half hour, closed with the singer reportedly signing a waiver that allows Attorney Mark Geragos to appear on his behalf unless his presence is required. As previously reported, Geragos was rumored to have spoken with the District Attorney’s office earlier this week in hopes of nabbing Brown a plea deal. Chris Brown is facing one count of making Criminal Threats and a Felony Assault count. If convicted he faces up to 4 years in prison or probation. Chris Brown is due back in court Monday, April 6th.
