Will A Civil Settlement Free Chris Brown From Doing Jail Time?

Chris-Brown

Last week R&B singer Chris Brown went back to jail after being kicked out of rehab. (Click here if you missed it)

And it looks like he’ll be sitting in jail until his trial in D.C. starts, because the judge in the Rihanna case is waiting to see what happens in D.C before making the decision on sentencing him to 4 years in prison for violating his probation. According to TMZ Chris Brown’s attorneys is trying to make that situation in DC go away by offering the victim money in civil settlement.

Chris’ lawyer, Mark Geragos, has contacted the lawyer for the man who claims Chris assaulted him in D.C., breaking his nose, and offered him a BIG FAT CHECK.

We’re told Geragos is gunning for a civil settlement … which could very well mean the broken nose guy would tell prosecutors he no longer has an interest in pursuing the criminal case. And our sources say prosecutors are aware of the civil settlement negotiations.

We’re told Geragos may have already sealed the deal but if not … it should be done in a day or 2.

So it looks like if they offer the right amount money the problem will go away and Chris might get out of jail later this week or early next week.
