Chris Brown has rejected a plea deal in the assault case that happened in Washington, DC during Howard’s Homecoming weekend. The prosecutor revealed in court they had offered Brown a deal — reducing the charge to simple assault (he currently faces misdemeanor assault which carries a more severe penalty), but Brown’s lawyer, Mark Geragos — who was also in court — rejected it .
According to TMZ authorities have been searching the area looking for surveillance video capturing the run-in. For a long, long time they said they had nothing. Now they seem to be singing a different tune, but haven’t turned the video over to Geragos. Geragos — who believes his client did nothing wrong — is eager to see the video before cutting any kind of deal. Rehab is doing Chris a world of good, he looks healthy and fresh faced… The best I’ve seen him look in a while.
That was a smart move as of now the burden of proof lies with the plaintiff, and all the defense has to do is raise doubt. Easy.
