Prosecutor to Montana: It's My Prerogative to Pull Deal

1/21/2011 7:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Montana Fishburne's prosecutor invoked a legal precedent first established by women and Bobby Brown -- it's his prerogative to back out of a plea deal at anytime ... this according to legal docs.

According to the docs -- filed by Montana's attorney Shawn Chapman Holley --  the prosecutor's explanation for pulling a more lenient plea deal was it took too long to reach the agreement ... and "that as a prosecutor he is entitled to change his mind."

As we first reported, Holley claims the prosecutor in Montana's assault case had originally agreed to a plea deal that included no jail time -- but now wants Montana to serve 120 days.

Yeah, so this isn't going to make anybody else want to go forward with a plea deal anytime soon. If he goes back on his word over something like this, what is he going to do for something a little more sketchy?

I still feel horrible for her dad. Everyday has to be a living nightmare for him thanks to his daughter.

The only downside is that if prosecuters can change their mind then why would anyone cooperate with them for a lighter sentence?

Shawn Chapman Holley specializes in cir***venting the law [in California/Georgia] to cut celebrity justice deals for her notorious celebrity clients. I'd like to believe those antics wouldn't fly here in Iowa...

I'd like to believe it.

Celebrities are always doing crimes and expect to get off easy. Regular people nor their relatives get those opportunities. Montana committed an assault. 120 days is fair. She'll probably get checked in and be back on the street within a few days due to "overcrowding".
