PostSubject: Great! Former congresswoman Corrine Brown sentenced to five years in prison in charity slush-fund case   Mon Dec 04, 2017 4:21 pm

A federal judge sentenced former U.S. Rep. Corrine Brown to five years in prison on Monday, months after a jury convicted the Florida Democrat of fraud for using a charity for poor students as her personal expense account.

The allegations — which, in addition to fraud, included lying on tax forms and congressional disclosures — had already cost Brown her seat in Congress: She lost a primary election last year amid the scandal.

Prosecutors argued that the 71-year-old had turned a charity for poor students into an $800,000 personal slush fund, according to the Associated Press.

After a nearly 25-year career in Congress, she was convicted in May and could have spent the rest of her life in prison.

“This is a sad day for everyone,” U.S. District Judge Timothy Corrigan told Brown shortly after sentencing her, according to the Florida Times-Union. “I was impressed with all the outpouring of support for you, and I think it’s a tribute to all the work you’ve done over the years. That’s what makes this all the more tragic.”
