Sep 23, 2019

Opening arguments were scheduled to start Monday at 9 a.m. in a case involving federal and city loans for the failed Jerome Brown BBQ Sauce manufacturing plant.

After more than a year of legal maneuvers, the fraud trial of former Jacksonville City Council members Katrina Brown and Reggie Brown is beginning.

The two politicians, who aren’t related but who both won elections to the City Council in 2015, have pleaded not guilty to dozens of charges.
