Mark Geragos, Chris Brown's attorney, has begun firing away at the Los Angeles District Attorney's claims that Brown falsified his 180 hours of community service in the Rihanna assault case. Shortly after Brown's Wednesday afternoon court date, Geragos filed his own documents that he says proves Brown participated in the community service, after all.
For one, Geragos' filing refutes the D.A.'s claim that "no human being ever witnessed" Brown performing community service. Geragos claims that Richmond's deputy police chief "observed Brown working very hard at cleaning the brush at the [police] stables."
However, it is true that the D.A.'s filing claimed that the Richmond, Va., chief of police, Bryan T. Norwood, had a past relationship with Brown. That is not mentioned in Geragos' filing.
Also, Geragos' filing includes invoices and checks indicating Brown paid $31,534.70 to the Richmond Police Department for providing security during his community service. That is something that, according to the Geragos filing, the D.A. claimed brown didn't pay.
In addition, Geragos' documents state that the Richmond Police Department's general counsel sent the Los Angeles District Attorney documents showing Brown did at least some of his required 180 hours of community service, back in 2009 and 2010, at various police precincts.
However, nowhere in his filing does Geragos refer to the Tappahannock Children's Center. That is where Brown had previously claimed he frequently performed odd jobs. The D.A. has questioned the statements of Brown's hours at the Tappahannock Children's Center because Chris' mom filled out most of the paperwork, and was once the director of the center.
Still, Geragos seems to believe he has a lot more ammo in his bag. He even said in today's filing that he has only begun investigating the D.A.'s allegations, and says "what we've uncovered so far should shock the conscience of the court. And this is only the tip of the iceberg."
