Rihanna Will Testify In Brown Assault Case

RIHANNA's lawyer has confirmed the singer will testify against her boyfriend CHRIS BROWN if she's subpoenaed to appear in court as he fights two felony charges of assaulting her.
The troubled R&B singer is free on $50,000 (GBP35,700) bail after he was granted a continuance at his arraignment hearing on Thursday (05Mar09) - and he's due back in court in a month (06Apr09).
At that point, his girlfriend, who he allegedly beat up in a late-night row a month ago (08Feb09), could be called to testify against him by prosecutors keen to punish the Kiss Kiss singer to the full extent of the law.
Rihanna did not appear in court for the arraignment hearing, but reports suggest she has reconciled with the singer and was in Los Angeles with him.
And she could be in court for the hearing on 6 April (09).
Her lawyer, Donald Etra, has told MTV News, "She is planning to do everything that the law requires her to do. If she is required to testify, she will do so."
In court on Thursday, Etra was overheard telling Brown, "I think Rihanna would like this over as quickly as possible."
And the lawyer tells Us Weekly magazine, "Rhianna desires that it (the case) be quick and expeditious. She wants to get back to her life and her career."
Meanwhile, the judge overseeing the case has given Rihanna permission to tape conversations with her boyfriend.
If convicted, Brown faces up to four years and eight months behind bars.
