“Former Florida Rep. Brown lost her bid to stay out of jail while she appeals her conviction on fraud charges.
The 11th Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta rejected her request to delay the start of her jail time by another month on Monday after federal judge Timothy Corrigan directed the request there, the Florida Times-Union reported.
Brown is expected to report to jail no later than noon on Jan. 29. ”
2 courts reject ex-U.S. Rep. Corrine Brown’s bids to stay out of prison
Former U.S. Rep. Corrine Brown can’t stay free while she appeals felony convictions and she can’t delay reporting to prison, a pair of orders from separate federal courts said Monday.
Brown’s motion to stay free was rejected by the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta the same day that the judge in Jacksonville who sentenced Brown to five years behind bars turned down a request to delay the start of her sentence by another month.
