Chris Brown

D.C. Prosecutors are Railroading Me!

EXCLUSIVE

03-27-14-chris-brown-motion
Chris Brown says prosecutors in his Washington D.C. assault case screwed him over by unlawfully getting a sneak peek of witnesses ... so he wants the charges thrown out.

Brown's lawyer, Mark Geragos, says prosecutors had no right to take Brown's case before the grand jury.  He says in his legal docs the U.S. Attorney had already decided to reduce the charge from a felony to a misdemeanor assault. 

Geragos alleges the ONLY reason a grand jury was convened was to get a preview of how the witnesses in their case would fare under oath.  In other words, Geragos says prosecutors used the grand jury for a dry run, and that's absolutely an egregious abuse of power.

A judge has yet to rule.

Why go to the grand jury when he already been charged and has a trial date? Sounds fishy to me.

Ok. Nice strategy I guess. That's the benefit of having a fancy expensive lawyer. They try every trick in the book. Let's see if it works. A public defender wouldn't bother with all this effort and pouring through Westlaw for loopholes.

Chris, you are a self proclaimed thug. Thugs love going to jail, its their home away from home. Unless........unless your just a wannabe who only picks fights with girls and gay dudes. Yes! Yes, it makes sense now!

If he would grow up and stay out of trouble he would not need to be worried about getting railroaded.
