Chris Brown May Settle With Victim, Leave Jail
The 'X' creator is currently in jail for being kicked out of rehab. Due to a deal he made with a judge, Brown was hauled off to prison. Basically, if he left rehab, he was getting put in the slammer. He originally violated his probation stemming from the 2009 Rihanna assault after he was involved in another assault in Washington, D.C., last October, which is was prompted the original rehab stay.
Brown could be in prison for up to four years if a judge finds him guilty of violating his probation.
Sources tell TMZ that Brown's lawyer, Mark Geragos, has contacted the victim's lawyer and offered him a huge financial settlement. Apparently, Geragos wants a civil settlement so that the victim will drop the case. The same sources say that prosecutors are aware of the negotiations and the deal may already be in the can.
The crooner could be a free man sooner than fans thought. He was originally ordered to remain in jail until April 23.
