Chris Brown’s D.C. Assault Trial Delayed For Months [Details]
Rucuss staffApril 23, 2014
Chris Brown can’t seem to catch a break.
The Loyal singer’s assault trial in Washington D.C. has been delayed. Brown’s trial was scheduled to start Wednesday, but was delayed after prosecutors declined to grant immunity to his bodyguard, Christopher Hollosy.
Hollosy was convicted of assault on Monday. He was expected to testify in Brown’s trial and admit that he hit Parker Adams outside a W Hotel in October. Now Hollosy plans to appeal. Prosecutors did not grant Hollosy’s immunity, because he refused to meet with them to discuss his testimony following his conviction.
Brown is due back in a D.C. court room for a status hearing on June 25. It is the same day Hollosy is scheduled to be sentenced.
Brown’s attorney Mark Geragos said the delay could cost another six months, while prosecutors claim it could take a year. No new trial date for Brown has been set.
Brown will return back to California by U.S. Marshals Service. It’s unclear if a California judge will release the singer until his court date.
