LOS ANGELES (AP) — Chris Brown’s attorney says a motion seeking to revoke the singer’s probation is shameful and he intends to seek sanctions against prosecutors because it is defamatory.
Mark Geragos says the Los Angeles district attorney’s office has ignored sworn statements by police in Virginia that Brown’s community service was supervised. He says he intends to seek sanctions against the prosecutor’s office at a hearing Wednesday.
Geragos called the motion “shameful and a disgrace.”
Prosecutors filed a motion Tuesday claiming that there’s no credible evidence that the R&B singer performed six months of community labor in Virginia as ordered by a court after he pleaded guilty to assaulting Rihanna in 2009.
Geragos says the motion essentially calls everyone in the Richmond Police Department a liar, and that should not be allowed.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles prosecutors are asking a judge to order Chris Brown to redo his community service because of significant discrepancies in records submitted to a court.
Deputy District Attorney Mary Murray writes in a motion filed Tuesday that the records submitted by Richmond, Va., police to prove the R&B singer performed six-months of community labor are "at best sloppy documentation and at worst fraudulent reporting."
Brown was allowed to perform his community labor sentence for the 2009 beating of Rihanna in his home state of Virginia. Richmond police submitted paperwork last year indicating Brown had completed his sentence, but the logs showed the singer performing double shifts in the city and at a day care center where his mother once worked.
Richmond Police spokesman Gene Lepley had no immediate comment, and a phone message for Brown's attorney wasn't immediately returned.
