The photo that was felt around the world might get the case against Chris Brown completely dismissed. Chris’ lawyer, Mark Geragos, blabbed this morning outside of the courthouse that if the beat down photo of Alien Princess RiRi was leaked by someone from inside the LAPD, he will ask that the entire case be put down.
There’s currently an investigation going down as to how TMZ got a hold of the picture. Today in court, Mark asked that the preliminary hearing date be pushed back to give more time for the investigation. Mark said, “The leaks can form the basis for a motion to dismiss the case in regards to outrageous governmental misconduct.” The new hearing was set for May 28th. Mark is expected to file a motion regarding the photo before then. There’s also a chance that there may not even be a hearing if Chris’ lawyer is able to strike up a deal with the prosecution before then.
I’m not a lawyer like Star Jones, but I’m guessing Mark Geragos is going to yammer on to the court about how the beat down photo has already made him look guilty to possible jurors….blah…blah…
That’s my guess anyway. It’s not like this is going to go trial. Chris will strike a deal, they will slightly tap him on the hand and tell him not to do it again. Then he’ll go to anger management where he will have talk about why he’s so angry and that will be that. At least that’s what watching a few episodes of Law & Order tells me.
