Chris Brown’s Lawyer is Going for Dismissal

The team of Beater Brown has taken another cowardly route as the date of  Chris Brown’s hearing grows closer and the sing-song dance of the defense is slowly coming out. It seems that Scum’s lawyer is going to try to get the case completely dismissed on the grounds of the photo that was leaked by LAPD and TMZ. It seems shady grounds to me and hopefully the judge will see it as such. From Gossip Girls,

“As the case of Chris Brown’s attack on Rihanna progresses, Brown’s lawyer Mark Geragos has begun to unveil his strategy to get the whole thing thrown out of court.

The “Kiss Kiss” singer’s lawman’s first order of business is to attack the LAPD for leaking a photograph of Rihanna’s bruised face, as he believes it made a fair trial impossible.

Geragos stated, “I am informed and believe that this highly prejudicial photograph was sold by an LAPD officer to the entertainment website, TMZ. The photograph was immediately viewed by hundreds of thousands of viewers and was displayed on every news channel for several weeks … The purpose of the leak was necessarily for profit and to vilify Mr. Brown and poison the potential jury pool.”

He continued, “I intend to use such evidence at the preliminary hearing to attack their credibility … I believe there is a reasonable likelihood that the case will be dismissed at the preliminary hearing.”

However, Geragos’ strategy may not be enough right off the bat. An uninvolved lawyer told press, “It’s unlikely the judge will dismiss the case on the grounds of leaked evidence. It’s not police conduct at issue here, it’s Chris Brown’s.”

I strongly concur and while the fact that the photo was ever distributed to public hands is disgusting and should definitely be investigated, I don’t think that it changed anyone’s minds about what happened that night or the kind of person that Chris Brown is. Brown made his bed the minute that he raised his hand to Rihanna and it’s not only disgusting that he tried to worm his way back into her life but that he’s also now trying to get the entire case dismissed as though nothing ever happened at all. I surely hope that someone will make Chris Brown responsible for his actions and that no photo, or any other loophole or misdirection will get in the way of making sure that happens.
