Chris Brown May Strike a Plea Deal in Washington D.C. Assault Case
Chris Brown may be getting some good news. The singer is reportedly in talks with prosecutors over a plea deal for his Washington, D.C., assault case.
According to The Washington Post, the singer is scheduled to appear in court tomorrow (June 25) for a hearing. If both sides agree to the terms of the plea deal, Brown could accept what’s being proposed. Anonymous sources told the newspaper that attorneys hope that the deal can be completed as early as July 1.
If a plea deal isn’t struck, the ‘Loyal’ crooner could go to trial.
Breezy was arrested last year for allegedly assaulting a man outside of a hotel in Washington D.C., which violated his earlier probation. He was taken into custody on felony assault charges.
Before being released earlier this month, he was incarcerated since March after a judge sentenced him to 131 days in jail for breaking the rules at a rehab facility. Initially, Brown was sentenced to a year in jail. However, he received credit for 116 days he spent in rehab and another 59 days he spent in custody in May for violating his probation, stemming from his 2009 assault case against ex-girlfriend Rihanna.
Once he left jail, the ‘X’ creator celebrated his release with a huge party in Los Angeles.
