Chris Brown pleaded “Not Guilty” to both felony counts he is currently facing at his arraignment today, April 6th, in a Los Angeles courtroom. With his lawyer Mark Geragos prompting him when to respond, Brown said “Not guilty” to charges of assault and making criminal threats. After entering his plea, the judge told Brown that his next court date would be April 29th, which will be a “preliminary hearing.” The hearing was initially set for April 15th, but the late date gives the defense more time to work out a plea bargain.
