Mark Geragos, the singer’s lawyer, is due to appear before a D.C. judge on Monday, April 7th. He hopes to have his client’s charges dropped ahead of the trial on April 17th.

Geragos had also asked the court to have Brown released ahead of the trial into his custody so that they could prepare for the trial and travel together to Washington.

Brown will remain in jail until the day of court if the request is denied.

His problems escalated in March when the star was asked to attend a rehabilitation facility in Malibu. He was in a clinic seeking court-ordered anger management treatment.
