On Tuesday former DC Council Chairman Kwame Brown faced sentencing in federal court and the DC Superior Court.
In June, Brown resigned from the City Council after pleading guilty to bank fraud for lying on two bank loan applications a few years prior and for violating campaign finance laws.
Earlier in the day Tuesday, Brown was sentenced in federal court (for bank fraud) to one day in custody and six months of home detention. In the afternoon, Brown was sentenced to two years of probation and 480 hours of community service (for the campaign finance violations).
So now we ask you, Borderstan: Do you think justice has been served?
