Singer Chris Brown’s trial on an assault charge in Washington, D.C., which had been set for Monday, has been postponed until Wednesday.
A judge delayed it while attorneys work out issues over testimony from Brown’s bodyguard, who was convicted of assault in a separate trial.
Brown’s attorneys now want Hollosy to testify at the singer’s trial. Hollosy would be expected to say that he, not Brown, punched 20-year-old Parker Adams outside the W Hotel. But Hollosy’s lawyer Bernard Grimm told a judge he plans to appeal his client’s conviction.
Unless prosecutors grant Hollosy immunity, testifying in Brown’s case could affect his appeal.
