After being convicted for assault back in October, Chris Brown’s trial is being put on hold due to his bodyguards pending appeal and wait for immunity.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, The judge denied any possibility for Chris Brown’s release from custody in Los Angeles today while awaiting his newly moved trial. Although the original trial date was set for Wednesday in D.C., Chris Brown’s bodyguard, Christopher Hollosy, would not testify unless granted immunity due to his pending appeal. Hollosy had originally been expected to testify Wednesday that he was the one that hit Adam’s outside the hotel in October. On Monday he was tried separately and convicted of assault.
According to The Daily News, Hollosy will be sentenced June 25, which will be right before the status hearing on Chris Brown’s case. Brown had not been bailed since March 14 and will not be getting out any time soon. Brown’s lawyer said the wait could be at least 6 months for another set trial date, but prosecutors say it could in fact take a year.
The two men, Hollosy and Brown were accused in October for hitting a 20 year-old Maryland art student, Parker Adams, outside of the W hotel after Adams tried taking pictures with women outside of his tour bus. Witnesses stated that they exchanged words before Brown hit Adams followed by Hollosy. Hollosy on the other hand said that, he hit Adams after he attempting getting on Brown’s tour bus. Chris Brown denied ever hitting Adams but told a similar story.
The non-jury misdemeanor trial has no set reschedule date, but it could be months and even past a year before it is resolved.
