Corrine Brown’s attorney asks to present arguments before judge
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Former U.S. Rep. Corrine Brown’s lawyer on Friday night filed two new motions in court after she was convicted in May on 18 of 22 federal charges, including fraud and tax evasion, for stealing from an unregistered charity.
