Chris Brown's Lawyer

Chris Has Been 'Tortured'

By the D.A.

Chris Brown's lawyer just went nuclear at the L.A. County D.A. ... claiming, "I have never had a client who has been tortured like Chris Brown has."

Mark Geragos was livid at a news conference at his office after today's court hearing, vowing to seek not only sanctions against prosecutors but also claiming he wants them held in contempt of court  for filing false documents, accusing Chris of phonying his community service hours.

Geragos said of the D.A.'s motivation, "The D.A. is paralyzed with the thought his probation will be terminated.  If that happens they won't be able to jock him around like they've been jocking him around."

Geragos said Rihanna showed up in court to support Chris, and she thinks it's utterly ridiculous what the D.A. is doing.

Maybe the client should just stay out of trouble for 10 minutes & act like an adult.

There's a saying that lawyers who have the facts use the facts, lawyers who have the law use the law, and lawyers who have neither the facts nor the law pound the table.

Geragos is pounding the table.

Geragos said "Rihanna thinks it's utterly ridiculous what the D.A. is doing". Is this the same Rihanna Chris beat the crap out of?

Hey counselor........maybe if your client wasn't a wanna be thug, women beating, gay bashing douchenozzle.....he wouldn't be on probation in the first place. As it is, I kinda hope he gets Tupac'd.

Methinks the lawyer doth protest too much.

If there is doubt about the fulfillment of community service, the DA is obligated to investigate and prosecute if needed. The lawyer's off-the-wall screaming doesn't help Chris's case. It just makes any reasonable person suspect an attempt to distract from the facts. If Chris claimed he did CS at times he was clearly not in town, sorry - he's toast. The lawyer should stop screaming and start collecting reasonable evidence to the contrary. This is a probation violation hearing, the judge decides and the bar is set much lower for proof. So grandstanding won't help.
