Author Howard Bragman, a celebrity crisis expert, and legal expert Linda Fairstein appeared on ‘The Early Show’ to explain to co-host Julie Chen how Chris Brown’s charges following an alleged attack of his girlfriend Rihanna may affect his life and career. Fairstein said Brown will likely be charged with a misdemeanor since a weapon was not used and that probation and participation in a batterers program would be the result. Bragman urged people not to rush to judgement before all the facts come out. Bragman also said the public could forgive Brown if he’s contrite and through the passage of time.
