Chris Brown tries a change of subject defence

Chris Brown has, more-or-less, admitted that he did some bad things to Rihanna the night before the Grammy Awards. Oh, yes, he hasn't said "I am a domestic abuse type of guy", but he's alluded to events.

So, now he's up in court on charges relating to that night, what is his approach? He's trying to get the charges thrown out because of "government leaks":

"The leaks can form the basis for a motion to dismiss the case in regards to outrageous governmental misconduct," Brown’s attorney Mark Geragos told E! News today (April 29).

The leaks should never have happened. But they don't really make the punching of a woman any less wrong. You'd have thought that, if Brown believes he shouldn't have anything to apologise for, he'd at least have taken the opportunity to put his case. Calling for the charges to be dismissed on a technicality is the act of a weak, shameless coward.
