Woman beater Chris Brown took his case all the way to the Supreme Court and lost! Now bitch boy will be forced to face Rihanna in court on Monday, June 22.
The California Supreme Court on Wednesday rejected an appeal by Chris Brown’s attorney Mark Geragos to postpone what could be an explosive preliminary hearing set for next Monday for the R&B singer, who’s charged with threatening and beating his then-girlfriend Rihanna. That sets the stage for the dramatic reunion of the two former lovers as both are expected to appear in court Monday.
Geragos appealed to California’s highest court after a lower court judge, Judge Patricia Schnegg, denied his motion to access the confidential personnel records of 25 Los Angeles Police Department employees. Gergaos was seeking the records prior to the preliminary hearing, hoping to find out who leaked a shocking photo of a badly-bruised Rihanna taken after she was assaulted, allegedly by Brown.
Since being indicted on domestic abuse charges, CB’s attorneys have worked diligently to get the case delayed, especially now that Rihanna is set to take the stand against him.
CB has also been working hard to repair his public image in the weeks leading up to his trial.
The judge presiding over Monday’s hearing will decide if there is enough evidence to proceed with a jury trial. CB faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted.
