Chris Brown's lawyer is not taking a back seat while his client is slammed by the district attorney for possibly committing fraud when reporting his community service hours.
Mark Geragos delivered a strong message on behalf of his client after Deputy District Attorney Mary A. Murray filed a motion with the California Supreme Court claiming that Brown possibly committed fraud when documenting the number of community hours served in 2009. The singer was placed on formal probation in August of that year after assaulting girlfriend Rihanna months prior. Brown was ordered to give the community 180 hours by picking up trash and doing other odd-end jobs as supervised by the Los Angeles Police Department. Although Brown and his lawyer presented documentation proving that he completed all of the hours, the D.A. had reason to doubt the evidence telling the courts on Tuesday that there are "significant discrepancies indicating at best sloppy documentation and at worst fraudulent reporting."
Mark was sure to fire back at the D.A.'s accusations of sloppiness and potential fraud telling the press, "The D.A’s office has apparently lost their minds and apparently they can’t read their own reports which clearly state he did the work. They are making scurrilous, libelous and defamatory claims against my client. They should be embarrassed."
Further investigation will be given to determine whether or not Brown actually completed the hours he's claiming. For now, it's a battle of rhetoric between an angry lawyer and one suspicious D.A.
