Former Congresswoman Corrine Brown's attorney filed a motion to extend her prison report date by at least 30 days, according to new court documents filed Monday.
Brown is set to report to the prison system on January 29 for her 60-month sentence. This is an extension, as granted by the judge, from her original January 8 report date.
The motion states that the request for the extension is being made to give the Court of Appeals more time to consider Brown's filed appeal to be released pending her appeal trial, which the judge denied Monday.
Brown's counsel's original request for Corrine to be out of prison until her appeal trial was denied, as well.
The motion goes on to say, the appeal "is not so insubstantial that the Court of Appeals should be under any undue time constraints in considering the question."
The motion goes on to detail that Brown has found the support of "more than one Christian ministerial alliance who intend to request permission to appear as amicus at the Eleventh Circuit on the appeal bond motion."
Amicus is voluntary impartial advisory, which sits in on hearings. This is likely regarding the religious nature of the dismissal of juror number 13.
According to the motion, the amicus process will require "more time and attention" from the Court which is an additional reason to grant an extension of the report date.
