Convicted in May 2017 on 18 of 22 charges, former Florida Congresswoman Corrine Brown was sentenced to five years in prison for mail, wire, and tax fraud involving a sham charity.
On Monday she reports to prison.
After a federal appeals court denied Corrine Brown’s request to remain out of prison during her appeal this week, a source told the I-TEAM that Brown has been assigned to a Sumter County women’s prison camp and will likely report Monday.
The source said the 71-year-old former Democratic congresswoman has been assigned to a minimum-security prison camp for women that is adjacent to the Coleman Federal Correctional Complex, a medium-security federal prison for men.
The prison camp is about a 2½-hour drive from Jacksonville.
According to the Federal Bureau of Prisons, there are currently 391 female inmates at Coleman.
Brown, who was convicted of federal corruption, conspiracy, tax evasion and fraud, can report earlier than noon Monday to the Sumterville prison camp, but the I-TEAM source said that she will likely stretch her freedom as long as she can.
She is expected to attend a church service Sunday in Jacksonville.
The Federal Bureau of Prisons has already assigned Brown a federal inmate number: 67315-018.
Justice has been served!
Would it really that hard to get other Dems behind bars? What’s up, Hillary…
