The Chris Brown case seems to be dragging along, with both parties taking their time on coming to an agreement for a plea deal. But after today’s hearing, at least one matter was solved.
The $1 million in jewelry Rihanna had been wearing the night of the incident will now be returned. Rihanna had borrowed the jewelry on the night of her alleged attack to wear to Clive Davis’ pre-Grammy party.
And since the incident in February, the LAPD has been holding on to them for evidence sake. Today, however, it was decided that the LAPD would photograph the earrings and three rings, and return the pieces to the jewelers who lent them to her.
As for the case, a preliminary hearing has been set for May 28th. Rihanna will not have to testify that day. If she is called at all, it will be at a later date.
In related news, Chris Brown’s lawyer Mark Geragos had some harsh words for the LAPD today over the online leak of Rihanna’s photo, taken shortly after the assault.
He spoke out after the hearing to reporters, saying, “The leaks confirm the basis for a motion to dismiss the case in regards to outrageous governmental conduct.”
Geragos now wants the Rihanna case dismissed because of the leaks. Do you guys think he should get away with it or should he punished?
