Chris Brown Might Have Caught A Break & Shorter Jail Time [Details]
Do to reports of the pop star violating his rehab terms, Chris brown was sentenced to a month in jail leading up to his D.C. assault case hearing. Depending on the D.C. courts decision Brown could land four years in prison as a result of violating his probation in the Rihanna case.
But according to TMZ Brown’s lawyer might have found a way to dodge the whole ordeal…but at a price.
Sources connected with the D.C. assault case tell TMZ … Chris’ lawyer, Mark Geragos, has contacted the lawyer for the man who claims Chris assaulted him in D.C., breaking his nose, and offered him a BIG FAT CHECK.
We’re told Geragos is gunning for a civil settlement … which could very well mean the broken nose guy would tell prosecutors he no longer has an interest in pursuing the criminal case. And our sources say prosecutors are aware of the civil settlement negotiations.
We’re told Geragos may have already sealed the deal but if not … it should be done in a day or 2.
So if the D.C. prosecutors’ end up dropping the case then Chris may get out of jail either late this week or early next.
