Chris Brown has just received some unwanted news regarding his assault case in DC.  His trial has been put on hold for months because prosecutors declined to grant his bodyguard immunity.

Chris’ bodyguard, Christopher Hollosy, had been expected to testify in Brown’s trial that he, and only him, pummeled a man outside a Washington hotel in October. This is also what he said in his own trial last week that resulted in a guilty verdict.

Hollosy’s lawyer has said that Hollosy plans to appeal the decision and will not testify unless he is granted immunity in Brown’s case. Prosecutors have denied that request because he refused to meet with them to discuss his testimony following his conviction, so Hollosy’s lawyer now wants to wait until he is finished with the appeal.

A lawyer for Brown said in court that could take at least six months. Prosecutors think it could be closer to a year. A D.C. Superior Court set a status hearing for June 25, the same day Hollosy is scheduled to be sentenced. So for now, Chris will be transported back to California.
