Chris Brown Case Update: New Hearing Requested Regarding Rihanna's Possible Testimony

by at . Comments

In breaking news from the Chris Brown case, his lawyer, Mark Geragos, requested an unscheduled hearing two weeks before Brown's upcoming arraignment.

The hearing has to do with whether or not Rihanna will testify.

The case has been officially moved to L.A. County Superior Court Judge Patricia Schnegg. She is the judge who signed the search warrant in the case.

Chris Brown's hearing is set for March 23. He did not enter a plea at his first appearance in court, and has been actively seeking to end the case since.

The meeting, supposedly has nothing to do with the plea bargain Brown is said to be seeking, which would let him off the hook with no jail time served.

Brown faces serious felony charges stemming from his February 8 arrest. He allegedly got violent with Rihanna after receiving a text from Tina Davis.

What will result from this surprising new hearing in Chris Brown's case?

His arraignment had been scheduled for April 6. The March 23 meeting will take place in Schnegg's chambers. Prosecutors will be there; Brown will not.

Geragos is the one who requested the meeting, which is said to involve Rihanna's possible testimony in the case, according to sources close to the case.

Will he ask the judge to block prosecutors from calling Rihanna or limit her testimony? Does he hope he will be offered a more appealing plea bargain?

Rihanna has indicated, through her lawyer, that she will testify - if required by law. Having patched things up with Brown, she's clearly not hoping to.

Will it come to that? We'll see. Unless the case is settled before or on that date, the arraignment of Chris Brown is still set for April 6.
