Fighting Back-Chris Brown Rejects assault Plea Deal

Chris Brown got a September trial date Wednesday after rejecting a no-jail plea deal in his Washington assault case.

The Grammy winner was close to striking a pact with prosecutors Tuesday, but talks broke down over what he would acknowledge happened during the alleged sidewalk scuffle outside the W Hotel last October.

His camp was pushing for an Alford plea that would have allowed him to maintain his innocence while agreeing prosecutors had sufficient evidence to convict, a source told the Daily News.
Prosecutors want Brown to “accept responsibility,” a source inside the courtroom Wednesday told The News.

“They wanted him to read from a script that wasn’t true,” Brown’s prominent criminal lawyer Mark Geragos told the Daily News after the hearing.

The “Run It” singer, 25, was in court in the nation’s capital wearing white jeans, a black leather jacket and a black tie.
