Chris Brown

I Reject Your Plea Deal

And I'm Goin' to Trial!

Chris Brown Rejects Plea Deal
Chris Brown just REJECTED a plea deal in his Washington assault case -- so he's headed for trial.

TMZ caught up with Brown as he darted into his lawyer's office for a wardrobe change before his D.C. court appearance.

Chris was close to copping a plea but the deal fell apart because the prosecutor and Chris' lawyer, Mark Geragos, couldn't agree on a statement of fact about the events leading to the alleged assault.

Chris has said all along ... he didn't attack the alleged victim last year outside a hotel.

If Chris had pled guilty to assault, he would not have to serve any additional time in jail.  Now it looks like he's going to trial so jail is on the line again.

A trial date has been set for September.  Brown's bodyguard, Christopher Hollosy, has already been convicted of the assault.

Oh boy....probably not the best move. If he wasn't facing jail time as part of the plea bargain he should have taken it.

Roll them dice and don't think twice ... that is until you're spending time in one of the State's finer Grey-Bar Hotels.

Keep your mitts too yourself Mr. Brown and you find yourself in this situation again. Pretty simple. I think you are going to have too pay the piper on this charge though. Sucks, but you still had not learned. Odd.
