What is up with Kwame “Fully Loaded” Brown? A new docket entry filed today says the former D.C. Council chairman is due in court Oct. 9 for a “hearing on violation.”
But what is this alleged “violation?” That’s the question. The U.S. Attorney’s Office ain’t talking, Brown’s lawyer didn’t respond to requests for comment, and two dudes with law degrees LL spoke with said it could be anything.
Brown was set to appear in court in November for sentencing after pleading guilty to bank fraud this summer. Earlier this month, Judge Richard Leon delayed Brown’s orginial sentencing date in order to allow Brown to “complete his cooperation.” As part of his plea deal, Brown agreed to “cooperate completely, candidly and truthfully in any criminal investigation.”
Leon also ordered Brown to make weekly calls to pretrial services, reside at his Hillcrest home, and stay in the D.C. area between his guilty plea and sentencing.
