Some potential good new for Chris Brown has been reported. According to TMZ, the 24-year-old is closer to being released from jail. As previously reported, last week after being kicked out of rehab, a judge ordered him to stay in court until his DC assault trial.
Reportedly, Chris’ lawyer, Mark Geragos, has contacted the lawyer for the man who claims Chris assaulted him in D.C., breaking his nose, and offered him a settlement, which of course includes monetary compensation.
We’re told Geragos is gunning for a civil settlement … which could very well mean the broken nose guy would tell prosecutors he no longer has an interest in pursuing the criminal case. And our sources say prosecutors are aware of the civil settlement negotiations. We’re told Geragos may have already sealed the deal but if not … it should be done in a day or 2. So here’s the likely resolution. The alleged victim gets a ton of money (our educated guess is several hundred thousand dollars), D.C. prosecutors drop the criminal assault case and the Rihanna judge then lets Chris out of jail either late this week or early next.
Only time will tell if this tactic works in his favor. Stay tuned.
