Mark Geragos, Chris Brown’s attorney, announced yesterday outside of a preliminary hearing that he would be moving for a dismissal of all charges against Brown, because Geragos says that leaks of photos and information related to the case has harmed Brown’s ability to get a fair trial.
The leaks Geragos is referring to are the photos of Rihanna post-incident that surfaced in February. Geragos filed for an extension of discovery, the time when the attorneys gather evidence, pushing back the hearing that would set a trial date to May 28. There are rumors that the extension is mostly for Geragos to try to plea down Brown’s case without most of the information of the case gathered by police going public. [MTV]
