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.

Rihanna's attorney said to Chris, hi chris how are you doing, very openly in court, seems like he was showing that they are on the same side. This was not long after he informed the judge that Rihanna did not wish to have a no contact order.

WOW everyone makes mistakes, yes we do but just because she hits you first doesnt mean you have to beat her up, almost like he said "kill her" dude my mom was abused by my dad for over 23 years, I'm telling you famous or not no one deserves to be beat even if YOU HIT HIM FIRST.

A ticking OJ time bomb....no wonder the natives of that state are leaving in droves...leaving with their brains, money and sanity and safety intact. Let that State and its spoils go to the likes of the Chris Browns, who are allowed to walk free and harm its citizens, just as the Juice was because so many are star struck out there.

This is all going to end very badly unless the man is jailed at a State Prison doing hard State Prison time as you see on Lock Up. He needs to be away from us----there is a fuse inside him that when it gets lit, explodes----we dont know all the reasons, just know he has that fuse and any reason from childhood can move him to fear and than an explosion on the person nearest him.

God help us all if he walks..and God help California and its future for its present looks bad right now---you're out of money folks.

THE JUDGE SHOULD MAKE AN EXAMPLE OUT OF HIM LIKE THEY DID MARTHA STEWART AND LIL' KIM. HE SHOULD GO TO JAIL WHILE HE IS YOUNG, SO HE'LL LEARN NOT TO PUT HIS HANDS ON ANOTHER WOMAN.

I am SO disgusted by both of them. Maybe he needs to beat the crap out of her AGAIN, so MAYBE she gets it. They both make me sick and I hope he burns in hell for what he did to her what a second time? Probably more than that! Chrisr Brown you suck and so does your music.

Ok, lets pretend that SHE DID START IT!! (reading the text, etc) Ok, SO WHAT?!? I'm sure that Chris' mom has pissed his dumb ass off before. Did he damn near kill her off too??!! And then after that, DID HE LEAVE THE SCENE??? Also, I keep hearing people say that "He's young. It was a mistake." WTF!!! Look how many people are locked up because of mistakes!! STFU with this foolishness!! You teeny boppers are idiots to think that this guy would love you and treat you better than he treated her. He doesnt even write his own songs so you don't even know HOW he truly feels about women!! This has got to be one of the craziest cases i've ever witnessed. I must admit though that he has some MAJOR BALLS to beat on his celebrity girlfriend like this IN PUBLIC. I hope he can hold on to his "manliness" in prison.

Chris Brown is over.. his career died the moment he hit her (this time)

Her career is dead too, for being such a wimpy woman.
No more songs about being a strong independent woman. She ain't.

Both are dead.

THE JUDGE SHOULD HAVE ISSUED A NO CONTACT ORDER REGARLESS IF RIRI WANTED ONE OR NOT. CHRIS BROWN IS A WOMAN BEATER. AN OUT AND OUT DISGRASE OF A MAN. IF RIRI TAKES HIS ASS BACK, SHE IS SHOWING YOUNG GIRLS ALL OVER THE WORLD THAT IT IS OK TO STAY WITH A PUNK WHO BEATS THEM. SHE REALLY NEEDS TO THINK LONG AND HARD ON THIS ONE. LONG AND HARD. I HOPE THEY THROW THE BOOK AT CHRIS. FROM THIS DAY FORWARD, I WILL NO LONGER SUPPORT CHRIS. DOING SO IS SAYING IT IS OK TO BEAT WOMEN.

Maybe Rihanna needs a quick reminder from Tina Turner about her problems with Ike. Once it starts... it does not end well..

Brown is such a punk
