Rihanna Will Testify

News of the expected: Rihanna will testify against Chris Brown.

In the latest news from the Chris Brown trial, Rihanna is expected to testify. This, while seemingly not news given the fact that the DA has subpoena power, is actually significant. Newly enacted Prop 9 (Marsy's Law) gives crime victims considerable say about whether or not they will participate in the prosecution.

Here is a recap:

  • Lawyer says singer has cleared her schedule to comply with a subpoena
  • Chris Brown previously said he hoped to resolve the case without public testimony
  • Judge: Leak of photo showing Rihanna with bloodied face won't hinder prosecution
  • Brown allegedly attacked Rihanna after she found text from another woman

Dress Warm will continue to follow and comment, should they ever get the trial off the ground.
