The website reports that Brown is talking with prosecutors in a hope to avoid a jail sentence.

So far no felony charges have been filed against Brown. Radar reports prosecutors feel felony charges are unlikely and that a deal would likely include Brown pleading guilty to a misdemeanor charge and would not serve anytime behind bars.

The defense team is also said to be concerned that the release of a photograph allegedly showing a battered and bruised Rihanna could taint any jury pool.
