Chris Brown Pleads Not Guilty

This is the case that never ends.... but it will soon if it's up to Rihanna.

The pop star was nowhere to be seen today as Chris Brown went to court for his arraignment. There, he pled not guilty to two felonies -- assault and making criminal threats.

Chris is due back in court on April 29, but RiRi seems to want this whole mess to be over even sooner.

Following the arraignment, Rihanna's lawyer, Donald Etra, spoke with reporters, and said that Rihanna would be glad "if it [the case] were over quickly"... which sounds very much like there's going to be a plea bargain.

As we reported earlier today, Chris (and now apparently Rihanna) wants to strike a deal, as his lawyer, Mark Geragos, and the prosecution have been engaged in "serious" plea bargain negotiations.

We totally get that Rihanna wants this all to go away, but do you think it hurts her as a role model for young girls? And how can Chris be "not guilty" after the haunting details of the assault?

See which stars -- like Chris Brown -- started as role models, but have fallen from grace.
