Chris Brown Prepares For Trial
WASHINGTON, April 22 -- Chris Brown's assault trial in Washington D.C. will begin today (21.04.14).
The 'Fine China' singer - who is accused of breaking Parker Adams' nose when he tried to insert himself in a photograph that the singer was taking with two female fans outside the W Hotel in Washington D.C. last October - is set to appear before a judge to face misdemeanour charges stemming from the incident.
His bodyguard Christopher Hollosy, who was also involved in the fracas, was found guilty of misdemeanour assault this morning.
The judge agreed to allow the 24-year-old star and his bodyguard to have separate trials, as Hollosy will act as a defence witness for the singer.
Hollosy's sentencing is set for June 25.
The 'Turn Up the Music' hitmaker has been in jail in the city since being transferred there from Los Angeles by the US Marshals Service earlier this month.
If convicted the entertainer faces a maximum of six months in jail and $1,000 fine, but he also faces up to four more years in jail in California as a result of violating the terms of his probation, stemming from his assault on Rihanna in 2009.
