Chris Brown's Attorney

Here's PROOF the D.A.

Lied About Community Service

breaking news

0206-chris-brown-mark-geragosChris Brown's attorney is firing back at the District Attorney's allegation Chris, and others, lied about the completion of his 180 hours of community service ... and he's filed legal docs to prove it.

Mark Geragos filed his response to the D.A.'s scathing motion ... and claims prosecutors omitted some key facts.

In his docs, Geragos refutes the D.A.'s claim that "no human being ever witnessed" Chris performing community labor -- claiming Richmond's deputy police chief "observed Brown working very hard at cleaning the brush at the [police] stables."

Geragos' filing also includes invoices and checks indicating Chris paid $31,534.70 to the Richmond PD for providing security during his labor details -- which the D.A. claimed Chris didn't pay ... according to Geragos.

According to the documents ... Richmond PD's general counsel also sent the D.A. documents showing Chris did some of his required community service -- back in 2009 and 2010 -- at various police precincts.

Nowhere in the filing does Geragos refer to the Tappahannock Children's Center ... where Chris says he frequently performed odd jobs. The D.A. has questioned the bookkeeping of Chris' hours there because Chris' mom filled out his paperwork, and was once the director of the center.

Geragos adds in the filing ... he's just begun investigating the D.A.'s allegations, and says "what we've uncovered so far should shock the conscience of the court. And this is only the tip of the iceberg."

Can someone tell me why a violent guy who beat up his girlfriend was even allowed to do his community service work at a CHILDRENS center? Why did that ever get approved in the first place???

I'm not from the US, but from what I see this guy is good for the economy to pay taxes. It wouldn't make logic to lock this guy up

Well then, that explains everything. If his mother did his paperwork and was part of the center, than he's telling the truth, right?? WRONG.
Why is his attorney bringing up community service from 3 YEARS AGO. He has said nothing about the recent bout of community service, and if you did not do anything wrong, then why all this community service then?? What, was he bored and just decided to help people out.
Face it, his mommy covered for him, AS USUAL. That's his problem.

Cyber-bullies is what 98% of you are doing. The thing is you believe that it is alright. Kids, teens, and young adults are killing themselves over stuff like this. Bullying is wrong whether it is on the internet or on the playground.
Comments like the first one from Chef Jack Tripper are funny. He or she is only stating the obvious.

And understand this... Freedom of Speech / Expression is"Right to express one's ideas and opinions freely through speech, writing, and other forms of communication but without deliberately causing harm to others' character and/or reputation by false or misleading statements. Freedom of press is part of freedom of expression."

Also without Government interference. Well the government is far to busy to focus on a bunch of blogs, but if they were most of you would be in trouble. Most of the time the comments are funny, but these Chris Brown comments are just getting worse by the story.

Who was suppose to be supervising Chris while doing community service?. Aren't they suppose to check in and out like a job.Don't blame Chris blame the system. Who selects where they can serve it anyway if he did that is way too may privileges. That is one the problems in the judicial system why didn't he serve it in LA where he could have been monitored more closely. These officials need to get their act together that
