Prominent Jacksonville names fill witness lists for pending Corrine Brown trial

Jacksonville, FL — The fraud trial against former Congresswoman Corrine Brown is scheduled to start in just over a week, and there could be some notable names called by prosecutors.

The US Attorney's Office has submitted 45 names as potential witnesses and Corrine Brown's lawyer submitted 33 names. Among the people who will be called are Jacksonville politicians, political strategists, prominent attorneys, independent authority members and leaders, Brown's daughter, among others. The list also includes Brown's former Chief of Staff Ronnie Simmons and the former head of One Door For Education Carla Wiley, both of whom have agreed to take plea deals for their part in this case, in exchange for helping prosecutors.

Brown, Wiley, and Simmons are accused of collecting about $800,000 in donations to One Door, saying the money would be used for scholarships and other charitable purposes. The US Attorney's Office says, in reality, the money went toward personal expenses of the three involved.

Brown is facing various charges- aiding and abetting mail fraud, aiding and abetting wire fraud, conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud, scheme to conceal material facts on financial disclosure forms, corruptly endeavoring to obstruct or impede the IRS, and filing false income tax returns.

Jury selection is slated to start April 24th, with the trial scheduled to begin April 26th. Brown intends to testify during the trial.
