Chris Brown

D.C. Prosecutor Wants

Assault Trial to Begin ASAP

6/4/2014 10:38 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0509_chris_brown_tmzChris Brown could be on trial in his D.C. assault case sooner than he thought ... because TMZ has learned the prosecutor is using his probation violation to angle for an early trial date.

As TMZ first reported ... despite his admission of violating his Rihanna probation, Brown maintains he didn't specifically admit guilt in the D.C. assault case.

But TMZ has obtained documents filed today by the U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia ... asking a judge to now make June 25 the start date for the trial ... instead of just a status conference.

The prosecutor disagrees with Brown's assertion ... and says his admission DOES count as an admission of guilt in this case, and therefore the trial should begin without any further delay.

If the judge agrees, Brown will be back in a D.C. court before the end of the month.

There's something fishy with this move. The DC courts are as unethical as the Californian Celebrity Courts...

Wow ...    

I wonder what else Chris has done to violate the terms of his probation then, if not for the DC incident?

Well at least he'll be able to get there in comfort this time. The DC prosecutor really seesm to have a hard on for this case. I doubt he'll get jail time when convicted, but it'll probably mean even more probation.

I doubt it will happen then. Judges are usually pretty careful to not do anything that could be used in an appeal. If he were to start the trial early and Chris loses, he could go to an appeals court and possibly get it overturned based on it starting too early.
I think it would be BS if that happened, but why take the risk? Give him a few extra weeks or whatever if it keeps him from using it as an excuse.
