(CNN) — Singer Chris Brown was being held in a Virginia jail Thursday while he awaits trial in Washington D.C. for misdemeanor assault, the facility confirmed Thursday.

He is being held in Warsaw, Virginia.

The U.S. Marshals Service delivered Brown there on Monday after a five-day cross country trip via the Justice Department’s Con Air — the nickname for the federal government’s Justice Prisoner and Alien Transportation System.

The trial is likely either on April 19 or 21, following the trial of his bodyguard.

Once the Washington case is concluded, Brown is to be returned to the Los Angeles County jail the same way he got to Washington — via Con Air.

If he is acquitted in the trial, however, it is expected his lawyer Mark Geragos will attempt to persuade the Los Angeles judge to allow him to fly back to California on his own.

The singer and his bodyguard, Christopher Hollosy, are charged with hitting a man on a sidewalk just blocks from the White House in October.
