Mark Geragos, Brown’s attorney, claims that prosecutors got an unfair trial run at witnesses during a grand jury proceeding. According to the website, Geragos believes that a grand jury was unnecessary because the charges had been reduced from a felony to a misdemeanor, and the only reason the prosecution convened a grand jury was to get a chance to test their witnesses under oath.
Brown is currently be held at the L.A. County jail after another judge revoked his probation. He is to remain in custody until April 23rd.
