Don’t You Be On That Bull: Judge Orders Chris Brown Back To Court In June For ‘Faulty’ Community Service Hearing
Things just might not be looking up for Chris Brown in one aspect after all.
A couple of months ago, we told you about the police chief who resigned after he allegedly signed off on faulty community service hours performed by Chris Brown. Well, his lawyer and the prosecutor met with a judge on Friday to discuss the next steps in what is turning out to be a messy situation.
CNN reports that Brown sat in the courtroom while prosecutor Jackie Lacy and Mark Geragos, Brown’s lawyer, sat behind closed doors with Judge James Brandlin to discuss the evidence which claims Brown’s hours were not accurately met. When the meeting was done, the judge told Brown that he would have to come back to court on June 10th because the lawyers needed more time to sift through additional discovery in his case.
Geragos seems outraged at these claims. So much so that he has asked the judge to punish the district attorneys handling the case and call for a contempt of court hearing for filing false documents. He says this whole situation is not just false but “it is fraudulent.”
Geragos says the prosecutors are “torturing” his client.
Despite the serious allegations, the district attorney’s office is asking that he restart his 1,400 hours of community service, not jail time. She also wants him to be supervised in Los Angeles, where the star currently lives, and nowhere else.
Hopefully, this situation will be resolve with the correct ruling, no matter which side wins.
On a positive note, Brown’s new song “Fine China” has been getting major buzz and putting him in a really good musical place in his life.
