L.A. City Attorney Drops Charges Against Brandy
December 31, 2007 at 5:11 AM (PT)
BRANDY is in the clear -- according to TMZ. The LOS ANGELES city attorney will not be filing charges against the singer over the multi-car crash that claimed the life of a woman in DECEMBER 2006.
The attorney had until the end of the day FRIDAY (12/28) to file criminal charges against BRANDY in the incident. The singer's attorney, BLAIR BERK, reportedly responded with a statement, saying, "These past 12 months have posed an extraordinary hardship for BRANDY and her family, who have been unfairly forced to live under a cloud of suspicion initially caused by the ill-advised and premature press release sent out by the CALIFORNIA HIGHWAY PATROL accusing BRANDY of wrongdoing before the police investigation was even finished. However, BRANDY continues to be mindful that she was so fortunate to be uninjured in this accident and there was a life lost that should be remembered."
BRANDY is, however, still facing a $50 million wrongful-death suit from the family of the victim, AWATEF ABOUDIHAJ.
