Michael Brown Sentenced to 39 Months in Prison

Former D.C. Councilmember Michael Brown was sentenced Thursday to 39 months in federal prison and 24 months of supervised release for taking bribes from undercover FBI agents.

Prosecutors had sought 43 months, largely because they said Brown initially didn't tell them about the $100,000 in illegal, off-the-books help he got from the District's premier shadowy financier, Jeff Thompson, in his winning 2008 Council campaign.
