Chris Brown’s lawyer Mark Geragos is far from pleased with the L.A. County District Attorney’s allegation that the star lied about doing community service.

In his official response to the D.A.’s scathing motion, Geragos hits back hard, claiming that prosecutors omitted key facts and implying they are out to get Chris.

Brown is accused of falsifying reports, but Geragos refutes claims that “no human being ever witnessed” Chris performing the required community service.

On the contrary, Geragos claims the deputy police chief in Richmond, Va., personally “observed Brown working very hard at cleaning the brush at the [police] stables.”


Geragos’ filing also includes invoices and checks indicating that Chris Brown paid $31,534.70 to the Richmond PD for providing security during his labor details.

Richmond PD’s counsel also sent the D.A. documents showing Chris did some of his required hours of service – back in 2009-2010 – at various police precincts.

However, nowhere does Geragos refer to the Tappahannock (Va.) Children’s Center, where Chris says he performed odd jobs and where his mom was once director.

The D.A. has questioned the validity of Chris’ hours there because Joyce Hawkins filled out his paperwork and no one else appears to have seen him working there.

Geragos says he’s just begun, however, and that “what we’ve uncovered so far should shock the conscience of the court. And this is only the tip of the iceberg.”

Richard Marx had no immediate comment.
