Chris Brown Rejects Plea Deal; New Trial Date Set

Chris Brown Rejects Plea Deal
Troubled singer Chris Brown is heading back to court to stand trial for assaulting a fan in D.C.
Gossip tabloid TMZ caught up with the 25-year-old singer as he rushed into his lawyer’s office today. Brown was prepared to accept a plea deal with a D.C. prosecutor to avoid jail time but the deal fell apart because Brown and the prosecutor couldn’t agree on the terms of the plea bargain.
From TMZ:

Chris was close to copping a plea but the deal fell apart because the prosecutor and Chris’ lawyer, Mark Geragos, couldn’t agree on a statement of fact about the events leading to the alleged assault.
Chris has said all along … he didn’t attack the alleged victim last year outside a hotel.
If Chris had pled guilty to assault, he would not have to serve any additional time in jail. Now it looks like he’s going to trial so jail is on the line again.
A trial date has been set for September. Brown’s bodyguard, CHRISTOPHER HOLLOSY, has already been convicted of the assault.
Some people prefer the structured environment of the penal system, I guess.
