A motion filed by her defense says Brown has been displaced since September 9th because of Hurricane Irma, and that FEMA told her the home is uninhabitable. Her defense further says many of Brown’s personal papers and effects were destroyed in the storm, and that has severely impacted the ability of her and others to prepare for sentencing.
The sentencing hearing is currently slated to begin November 16th, but the defense is asking for at least an additional four months. The federal court docket says the judge has given the government until the end of the day Thursday to respond, but the defense motion notes prosecutors object to the request.
Brown is out on bond, pending the sentencing hearing.
