Chris Brown is still in jail and desperately trying to buy his way out, but prosecutors are fighting hard to keep him right where he is and trying to assure that he doesn’t jilt the system yet again to get off without punishment. Of course, when Chris attempts to manipulate the law for his own gain, it’s 100% legit and totally fine, but when prosecutors give him a taste of his own medicine, he starts crying about being picked on.
Chris Brown says prosecutors in his Washington D.C. assault case screwed him over by unlawfully getting a sneak peek of witnesses … so he wants the charges thrown out.
Brown’s lawyer, Mark Geragos, says prosecutors had no right to take Brown’s case before the grand jury. He says in his legal docs the U.S. Attorney had already decided to reduce the charge from a felony to a misdemeanor assault.
Geragos alleges the ONLY reason a grand jury was convened was to get a preview of how the witnesses in their case would fare under oath. In other words, Geragos says prosecutors used the grand jury for a dry run, and that’s absolutely an egregious abuse of power.
A judge has yet to rule.
Now I’m not a lawyer, but don’t prosecutors get to know who the witnesses are going to be so they can prepare their cross-examination questions? Like, isn’t that just… normal procedure? What could be a “gross abuse of power” seems to me like prosecutors know that Chris likes to try and pull slick shit and will even pay people off to make sure he doesn’t pay for his crimes, so they’re trying to avoid that at all costs.
Sorry, but I’m on the prosecution’s side, here. Let this idiot rot.
