A Los Angeles judge is still considering letting the singer Chris Brown walk free from jail ahead of a court hearing in Washington, D.C. scheduled for April, by the request of singer’s attorney.
Mark Geragos visited the court premises on Tuesday, April 1st, requesting time with his client ahead of the assault trial. The trial is related to a fight outside a Washington, D.C. hotel in 2013.
According to the lawyer, it is outrageous for the singer to be sent to a hearing directly from Los Angeles.
As TMZ reports, the lawyer argued that Chris should be allowed to take time to prepare for the hearing, before he flies back to Washington, D.C. as a free man on April 17th.
The troubled singer has been held in jail since he violated his probation in March. The violation was due to being kicked out of a rehab clinic in California.
A judge earlier ordered the singer to remain in jail, after he told a group therapy session that he was “good at using guns and knives” in response to an exercise in which Brown was asked to reflect on things he was good or excelled at.
The facility cited three other violations of its rules, claiming Brown refused to take a drug test, made a statement that alarmed rehab officials and was seen touching the elbow of a female client.
He said in the message calling from jail, “I’m calling all my fans, letting ya’ll know I love ya’ll. Thank ya’ll for all the support.”
