Former Congresswoman Corrine Brown, a Democrat whose former district included the Jacksonville area, has been sentenced to five years in prison and three years probation, the AP reports.

Earlier this year, in May, Brown was convicted on 18 of 22 charges brought against her, including fraud, lying on her tax returns and lying on her congressional financial disclosures.


The charges stem from her role in a federal corruption conspiracy that involved stealing about $800,000 from a fake education charity for needy children, called the One Door for Education Foundation.
