It’s day like today that Chris Brown probably feels his high-powered attorney, Mark Geragos, is worth his high hourly rate.
Geragos kept the R&B singer from going to jail on Monday.
Los Angeles Deputy District Attorney Mary Murray filed a motion reading: “He continues to pose an increasingly violent danger to society,” citing the Washington D.C. case where he is accused of beating up a guy and an incident in which Chris threw a brick through his mother’s car window after a therapy session.
But, Geragos pointed to the probation report saying Chris has made “great strides” while in treatment for anger management and has tested negative for drugs several times. “I’ve known him for five years,” the attorney said, “and he’s looking as good as he’s ever been.”
Superior Court Judge James R. Brandlin agreed that the singer should finish his 90-day court-ordered treatment.
Chris is on probation for beating Rihanna in 2009. He’s due back in court on February 28.
