(Graham Media Group) – Former U.S. Rep. Corrine Brown’s attorney made his case Monday afternoon for why her convictions on 18 federal mail, wire and tax fraud charges should be thrown out, or that she be given a new trial.

The 12-term congresswoman from Jacksonville was convicted in May of taking money raised for the One Door for Education Foundation and lying on her taxes and congressional financial disclosure forms. Prosecutors convinced a jury that Brown used the unregistered charity as a personal slush fund.
