Former Florida Congresswoman 72-year-old Corrine Brown is scheduled to report to prison on January 29th but her attorneys are arguing that she does not belong behind bars.
Brown was sentenced to five years in federal prison after being convicted on 18 of her 22 felony criminal charges, related to a charity scam.
But she is fighting to stay free while appealing her conviction on charges related to a charity scam.
Brown’s attorney filed a document at the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta on Friday, writing that the trial judge’s decision to remove a juror could lead to a reversal of her conviction.
He said that’s why Brown should not go behind bars.
