Corrine Brown Sentenced to Five Years in Prison in Fraud Case
The following article appeared in
Free Beacon on December 4th
Former Democratic Rep. Corrine Brown
(Fla.) was sentenced to five years in prison on Monday for her conviction in a
federal fraud case involving a charity she used to enrich herself.
But..But, doesn't CHARITY begin at home?
The sentence matches the
recommendation from prosecutor Tysen Duva, who asked the judge at Brown's
sentencing hearing last month to not give her anything less than five years, according toAction News Jax.
Brown was convicted in May on 18 counts of wire fraud, tax
evasion and other charges stemming from her theft from a Virginia-based
charitable foundation. She was found guilty on seven counts of wire
fraud, five counts of mail fraud, one count of scheme to conceal material
facts, three tax fraud charges, and one count of obstructing IRS laws:
More than $800,000 was
deposited into One Door for Education, the Virginia-based foundation. Only
$1,200 of the foundation's money went to charity.
Federal authorities discovered last
year that Brown, Elias, and Carla Wiley, the foundation's president, spent
$200,000 of the group's money on NFL tickets, luxury vacations, plane tickets,
car repairs, and lavish events.
An FBI agent testified
during the trial that Brown had cash taken from the foundation and funneled
into her bank account.
Foundation president Carla Wiley was
sentenced to 21 months in prison, with a three-year supervised release, for her
role in the scheme, and Brown's former Chief of Staff Ronnie Simmons was
sentenced to 48 months.
