Chris Brown's Lawyer Wants Access to LAPD Records

Geragos stated, "I am informed and believe that this highly prejudicial photograph was sold by an LAPD officer to the entertainment website, TMZ. The photograph was immediately viewed by hundreds of thousands of viewers and was displayed on every news channel for several weeks… The purpose of the leak was necessarily for profit and to vilify Mr. Brown and poison the potential jury pool."

Once he would find out that the police indeed leaked the photo, "I intend to use such evidence at the preliminary hearing to attack their credibility… I believe there is a reasonable likelihood that the case will be dismissed at the preliminary hearing," he added.
