The Chris Brown legal saga continues. The fate of Brown’s legal future rests in the hands of a Washington D.C judge who will determine whether or not Brown is guilty of assaulting a man in front of the W Hotel last October.
The singer’s trial was set to begin on Wednesday morning, but according to the Associated Press, the trial was delayed after “prosecutors told a judge they won’t grant immunity to bodyguard Christopher Hollosy, who was convicted of assault in the incident. Hollosy had said that without immunity, he wouldn’t testify until he’s finished appealing his case.” Hollosy, who was convicted on Monday, is a key witness in the case.
The judge ordered Brown to be back in court in June. The singer will remain in custody and U.S. Marshals will bring him back to California.
HipHollywood spoke exclusively with Jamon Hicks or Douglas Hicks Law Group who explained why the 24-year-old, who is still on probation from the 2009 attack of then girlfriend Rihanna, may be facing some serious jail time if convicted.
“The judge in Los Angeles has already determined that by already picking up a new arrest he has revoked probation. But the judge has decided to wait til the outcome of the D.C case to determine what punishment if any there will be to Chris Brown ,” he told us. ” If he is convicted in the Washington D.C case the judge in Los Angeles is likely to give him something more substantial including jail time because then he would not only had been arrested by then convicted as well.”
He continued, “On a felony assault case typically the low term is 16 months, high terms three years. I’m would think it’s somewhere in that range, assuming that he doesn’t have a criminal record even before the Rihanna incident. I think he might be looking at a low term of 16 months.”
In October, Brown and his bodyguard, Christopher Hollosy, were arrested and charged with a felony assault charge after allegedly hitting a man in front of the W Hotel. The singer’s charge was later reduced to a misdemeanor.
