Judge Denies Re-Trial For Former Florida U.S. Rep. Corrine Brown

A federal judge Wednesday denied the request for a new trial by former Florida U.S. Rep. Corrine Brown.

Brown, 70, was convicted of taking money from the One Door for Education Foundation and lying on her taxes and congressional financial disclosure forms. Brown is accused of using the money as a personal slush fund. 

Brown may now spend her life in prison. 

She had requested the verdicts of her case be thrown out, arguing the judge should not have removed a juror who said he believed Brown was innocent based on guidance he'd received from "the Holy Spirit." 

U.S. District Judge Timothy Corrigan said the juror would've been removed even if he'd said Brown was guilty.

Brown will be sentenced on Nov. 16.
