Today was supposed to be the start date for Chris Brown's trial for the assault case stemming from a Washington D.C. incident, but things have changed.
Brown's bodyguard, Christopher Hollosy, (who was found guilty on Monday), was expected to testify for Brown and tell the court he was the one responsible for punching the 20-year-old victim. Hollosy plans to appeal his conviction, but his lawyer wants his client to be granted immunity, claiming he will not testify until it is granted to him.
Prosecutors don’t want to grant immunity to Hollosy because after his conviction, he failed to meet with them to discuss his testimony. They also don’t believe that his testimony (that only he threw a punch and Brown didn’t) is the truth.
In court today (Wednesday, April 23), Brown's lawyer predicted that it would take six months, while prosecutors say it will take a year.
"I think all of this is much ado about nothing and frankly I look forward to being able to try this at some point," Brown's lawyer Mark Geragos said outside of court Wednesday.
While no new trial date has been set for Chris, a status hearing has been set for June 25, the same day Hollosy is scheduled to be sentenced.
So that means Chris’ album X is in limbo…just like his days as a free man.
