A court hearing is scheduled for today in the Chris Brown assault trial, regarding Park Adams, who filed a police complaint against the 24-year-old singer in Washington, though he claims the star did not hit him. Brown’s lawyer Mark Geragos is attempting to have the case dismissed, citing prosecutorial misconduct, regarding the misuse of a grand jury. Brown was in jail for two week in Los Angeles and is in the process of being extradited to Washington, which entails a 4-day plane ride to the nation’s capitol.
Today’s hearing is pivotal, as it will set the tone of the case via dismissal or proceeding to trial on April 17, 2014. If a dismissal or settlement is not achieved, Brown risks 4-years in jail and a potential shift to prison if the charges are elevated from misdemeanor to felony assault, impacting his probation from the Rihanna domestic violence case.
