Brown sentenced Chahal to 12 months in county jail for violating his probation, but allowed him 30 days to file an appeal.Chahal did file an appeal stating that his second accuser never showed up in court, and therefore denied him due process.
Brown could allow Chahal to appeal his decision to the California Supreme Court, an observer who is closely watching the case told India-West on background. Since he has the money, I am sure he will,” said the observer, noting however that the California Supreme Court takes up only 100 cases a year; therefore, Chahal’s odds of being heard at that level are quite slim.
He noted that the appeals court made a very thorough argument for why it was upholding the lower court’s verdict.

By press time May 1, Chahal — who founded his first company Click Agents at age 25, and currently serves as the founder and CEO of G4 — had not returned a text left on his cell phone by India-West; he also did not pick up two calls.
Gurbaksh is a popular young millionaire in America. Gurbaksh started his career as an entrepreneur from the early age of 16 dropping out of high school working full time at his first venture Click Agents, which was an advertising company focused on performance-based advertising.
