Chris Brown -- No Plea Yet

3/5/2009 8:47 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Chris Brown and his attorney Mark Geragos did not enter a plea to the two felony charges. In a proceeding that took roughly 4 minutes and 20 seconds, the judge granted Brown's request to move the arraignment to April 6th.

It is unclear why they wanted to postpone the case -- possibly to conduct further investigations or possibly to strike a plea deal. We just don't know...

Based on our information, it seems Brown wants to avoid a trial at all costs because the picture of Rihanna taken one day after the incident -- which has not been seen anywhere publicly -- is unbelievable.

During the proceeding, Brown signed a waiver of presence, allowing his lawyer to act on his behalf -- meaning he won't have to show up to any minor court proceedings before April 6th.

Brown, who stood emotionless in court, spoke only four words to the judge -- "yes," "yes," and "yes ma'am."

After Brown's request to continue the case had been granted, the judge warned Brown, "You are not to annoy, harass, molest, threaten or use force or violence against anyone."

Etra is famous for repping Snoop Dogg in multiple court cases throughout the years.

you know i must say i kinda wasnt sure how to feel about the beatings and then i read that search warrent and was on rihannas side BUTTTTT then i remembered she went back to him! but i do have to ask you all, IF she doesnt care he beat the crap out of her WHY SHOULD WE?

i honestly dont respect either one of them as humans really anymore but i still respect them both as artists and ppl need to stop saying if we buy any of his stuff we support a women beater, thats a LOAD of crap!

I dont think its right for a man to hit a women (hope no one took it like that) AT ALL but i also dont think its right for the women to go back. i understand that sometimes there are certain situations that make it near impossible (money, no place to go) but non of that applies to rihanna she just says she loves hims, well ok i understand how hard it is to leave someone you love but come on lets think about yourself for a minutes would you rather just be heartbroken for a while or heartbroken and literally broken? idk maybe im the stupid one for thinking she is just as stupid as he is

Okay #341 - this did happen to his mother. According to one of his interviews, he grew up watching his stepfather beat his mother so can we say cycle of abuse (this is not meant to be an excuse). Also, You all are just down right cruel I understand that children are impressionable but you all are putting Rihanna down because she supposedly took him back. She is young and she is human and when you are young and in love, you do things without thinking of the consequences. If you all would present your own children with an image at home to look up to they would not have to rely on these celebrities as rolemodels. It is funny how the world is so unforgiving yet we all have our faults and want forgiveness for ourselves.

The other thing is everyone wants to see the young man looking defeated with his head down all the time. If he continues to beat him self up how will he ever rise above and begin to be a better person. We have seen one picture of this guy having fun how do we know that this is not the one time he decided to come out to get his mind off of what he is about to face in a few weeks. And besides, no matter what he does it will never be enough to satisfy everyone.

It appears that the person that he hurt has forgiven him so who are we to make him continue to relive it over and over. I have a daughter and if she was put into the situation that Rihanna is in, I would not like it but I can not decide for her what she should do. You can only give advice you can't make people take it. These two are young and have a lot to learn let them deal with this in their own way, on their terms and in their own time.

PEACE!

Violence is never the answer against a man or woman. Why don't we all just leave it alone already? People are so quick to judge others. We were not there, we don't know what really happened. Let them work it out. And for God's sake, reports are saying SHE TOOK HIM BACK! SO ALL OF YOU CHRIS HATERS, IF SHE ISN'T HATING HIM, WHY SHOULD YOU.
