Following a two-day trial in a Washington D.C. courtroom yesterday, Chris Brown’s bodyguard, Christopher Hollosy has been found guilty of assault. The Superior Court Judge, Patricia Wynn convicted him of a single count of misdemeanor assault for punching a 20-year-old fan. The judge ruled, saying the attack “was not justified”. The case has been scheduled for the 25th of June for sentencing. The bodyguard intends to appeal.
Chris Brown, on his own, is awaiting trail for the same charge. His court date has been delayed until tomorrow, April 23.
Christopher Hollosy has admitted that he threw the punch but the victim states that it was Chris Breezy that broke his nose. The victim has filed a $3 million lawsuit asking for $1.5 million each from Brown and Hollosy. Hollosy’s lawyer, Bernard Grimm stated in court while presenting his defence argument, that the boy is just trying to “get rich” from a bloody nose.
Chris Brown who was still on probation for the 2009 assault of Rihanna before this trial could serve up to four years in jail if convicted for the crime.
