Chris Brown’s attorney has asked a Los Angeles judge to block an order that would transfer the jailed crooner in federal custody to Washington, D.C. to face trial on an assault charge.

“We have no assurance he would it make it in time for the trial. Then, we’ve got no ability to get him back here,” Brown’s lawyer, Mark Geragos said in a court filing, according to the Los Angeles Times. “I don’t want him languishing there.”

The R&B singer is in jail and is due at trial on April 17 to face an assault charge, stemming from an October altercation in the nation’s capital. Last week, a D.C. judge authorized U.S. Marshals to transport Brown from Los Angeles for the trial.

However, Geragos proposed two options: block the federal order or permit him to escort Brown to the D.C. trial. A hearing is scheduled for Thursday (April 3) on Geragos’ motion.

If Brown gets convicted in the D.C. case, it will be considered a serious violation of the singer’s probation and the judge could sentence him up to four years in prison.

Meanwhile, Brown has sent a voicemail message via Karrueche Tran’s phone thanking his fans for their undying support. Also, Breezy’s video for ‘Loyal’ racked up 12.7 million views on YouTube since its premiere on March 24.
