Former D.C. Council Member's Sentencing Delayed

A former D.C. Council member who pleaded guilty to a bribery charge will have to wait a little longer to know his fate.

The Washington Post reports Michael A. Brown was to be sentenced Oct. 3. But prosecutors asked for a delay, and on Friday a judge reset sentencing for Jan. 16. Prosecutors said in asking for the delay that they have identified evidence of additional suspect conduct in the ongoing criminal investigation in which Brown is participating.

Brown pleaded guilty in June. He acknowledged accepting $55,000 in cash payments from undercover FBI agents posing as businessmen seeking preferential treatment from the city government. Brown lost his bid for a second term in November. He ran again for an open at-large seat but dropped out in April.
