It’s official. Chris Brown will be going to trial later this month, but not in Los Angeles.

According to the Los Angeles Times, U.S. Marshals have taken Chris Brown into federal custody and are transferring him from the Los Angeles County jail system to Washington D.C. where he will appear in his assault trial. He is currently incarcerated in the San Bernardino County jail where he has been since Tuesday.

He is expected to be in D.C. later today.

Brown’s attorney, Mark Geragos sought to keep the singer on the West Coast on the grounds that a transfer would keep him from being able to consult with Brown before the trial. He even requested that he be the one to transfer Brown himself.

Both requests were denied.

April 17th is Brown’s date for trial, in which he faces a misdemeanor assault charge for allegedly hitting a man who tried to take a picture of him. Brown was ordered to jail after he was kicked out of a court-ordered treatment center. He was ordered to attend treatment after beating his then-girlfriend, Rihanna in 2009. The center kicked Brown out after he allegedly touched a woman, failed to take a drug test, and made threatening statement during a group session.
