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.

"The judge granted Brown's request for a continuance to April 6th" - if you watch it again, you will notice he didn't even give the judge the option, just told HER exactly how it was going to work "my client will sign this in open court and we will continue April 6th".
Must be nice to be rich.

It pays to be famous. He'll get off scott free or just some minor slap on the wrist. (No Pun Intended) I hope he's learned from all this?! I hope Rihanna will learn from this as well and move on.

I'm guessing right about now C.B. wishes he had his cell phone turned off and never in Rhi-Rhi's sight during that infamous night. He wouldn't be in this ugly mess if he played it smart. Dumb ass!!
