A judge has agreed that Chris Brown doesn't need to be in jail. (Or not right now, at least.)
At a hearing earlier today, attorney Mark Geragos successfully argued against the L.A. County District Attorney's motion that Brown be locked up in light of a new wrinkle in his pending assault case in Washington, D.C. Prosecutors said that they have identified witnesses to interview and will be able to prove that he violated his probation stemming from his 2009 assault on Rihanna.
Geragos said that his client, who had his probation revoked on Dec. 16, is "making great strides" in his program and didn't deserve to have that progress halted. Brown was ordered on Nov. 20 to spend three months at a residential treatment center.
