Chris Brown could be back in court sooner than expected if U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia, Ronald Machen, has his way.
According to TMZ, Machen has filed for a judge to begin Brown’s trial for his D.C. assault case on June 25.
Last October, Breezy was arrested for felony assault after allegedly breaking the nose of Parker Adams, who reportedly tried to photobomp a picture Brown was taking with fans outside of a D.C. hotel. Adams claimed that Brown and his bodyguard, Christopher Hollosy, attacked him. While Hollosy was later found guilty of assault, the 25-year-old singer maintains that he didn’t admit guilt in the case.
However, during his May 9 court appearance, Brown admitted to having violated his probation stemming from his 2009 assault case on ex-girlfriend Rihanna. Yet, the prosecution is arguing that this is an admission of guilt and constitutes as a confession for his D.C. assault case.
If the judge agrees, the Grammy-nominated singer will be back in D.C. court before the end of this month. Brown was released from L.A County Jail earlier this week after serving a portion of his 131-day sentence.
“Humbled and Blessed,” he tweeted. “Back to the Music and the Fans.”
