Subject: Former U.S. Rep. Corrine Brown sentenced to five years in prison
Former U.S. Rep. Corrine Brown sentenced to five years in prison
Will have to serve at least 90%.
Incarceration date not set but likely in January 2018.
| Federal rules say Brown should begin serving her time while the
| appeal is pending unless the judge finds the defense is raising
| substantial issues that are likely to result in a new trial or a
| sentence shorter than the time he’ll need to decide the appeal.
I consider the latter possibility slight based ont Brown's
conduct on the stand in her own defense and her public statements
and the trial judges comments.
