Chris Brown's lawyer Mark Geragos says prosecutors in the case abused their power.
Chris Brown is looking to avoid punishment for yet another crime as his Washington, D.C. assault case could potentially be dismissed due to a misuse of the jury. TMZ reports that Mark Geragos, Brown's lawyer, demanded that the charges be thrown out after he learned that the prosecution used the grand jury for an unlawful "dry run" of the case.
Geragos believes the prosecution convened the jury just to gauge their reactions to witnesses before the case went to court, which is an abuse of their power. He also wrote in legal documents that the U.S. Attorney had previously reduced the charge from a felony to a misdemeanor assault. A judge has not yet ruled on the case yet.
The outcome of this case will have an effect on the additional case that arose after Brown was recently kicked out of his second rehab facility and refused a drug test.
