Chris Brown Assault Trial Set to Begin Wednesday

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON (WRIC) - After a two-day delay, the assault trial for singer and Virginia native Chris Brown is scheduled to begin Wednesday in Washington, but his attorneys might try to postpone it further.

Brown and his bodyguard, Christopher Hollosy, were arrested in October on accusations they punched a man outside a hotel. Hollosy told police he hit the man after he tried to get on Brown’s tour bus. But, the victim said both men punched him after he tried to get in a picture Brown was taking with two women.

Hollosy was convicted of assault Monday in a separate trial. He is supposed to testify for Brown at the singer’s trial, but Hollosy’s plan to appeal his conviction puts his testimony in jeopardy. An appeal could take months and the defense wants him granted immunity so he can testify. Prosecutors have not said whether they will grant the request.

The prosecution and defense were given extra time to decide how to proceed.
