Chris Brown is at the center of a shocking investigation after police allegedly recovered drugs, a gun and other weapons from his home on Aug. 30. Now, a lawyer explains to HollywoodLife.com just what kind of punishment Chris might face if the reports are all true!
Chris Brown, 27, might be in a lot of trouble. Los Angeles criminal attorney Mychal Wilson tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY, “If the alleged reports of weapons and drugs are true, then Chris Brown has some serious criminal legal issues and may be facing jail time if convicted due to his past criminal rap sheet.” Wilson adds that if the firearm is found to have been loaded, then Chris “could potentially be charged with a felony and could face from 16 months to 3 years in county jail” — so scary.
Wilson also explains that Chris may have broken California Penal Code 417. “It is unlawful for a person to draw or exhibit a deadly weapon in a rude, angry, or threatening way in the presence of another person and not in self defense or in defense of someone,” he says. ICYMI, Baylee Curran was partying at Chris’ house when he allegedly turned violet and threatened her with a gun. Police were called to his home, where drugs and weapons were allegedly found.
Finally, Wilson tells us that Chris’ past record affects the potential charges, too. “While Chris Brown’s probation ended in March 2015 after pleading guilty to attacking his then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009, he may face new charges in this police standoff matter — especially since he is becoming a menace to society with recent run ins with the law such as the Drake brawl, the Frank Ocean matter, driving without a license, the assault outside the Washington W hotel and most recently, allegedly viciously assaulting his former manager, Michael Guirguis (a.k.a. Mike G) earlier this year on May 12.”
UPDATE: Chris Ramirez, LAPD PIO, tells HollywoodLife.com: “We’re currently serving a search warrant at Mr. Brown’s residence. All of the individuals in the house will be asked to leave and will be interviewed as to what happened early this morning. No one, including Chris Brown has been arrested. We can’t confirm he pulled a gun on anyone or even if there’s a gun in his residence. We can’t confirm whether Royalty was in the home at the time of the incident.”
