Juror: ‘Holy Spirit’ said former congresswoman not guilty

(Associated Press) A juror dismissed during deliberations in former U.S. Rep. Corrine Brown’s fraud trial told his colleagues that the “Holy Spirit” told him she was not guilty, according to a court transcript.

Juror who said a higher power said that Corrine Brown is not guilty has not been identified

The transcript released Monday provided new details into why the unidentified juror was released during deliberations after another juror raised concerns over the comments.

Brown, 70, was found guilty of 18 of 22 charges associated with her use of money from a purported charity for poor children called the One Door for Education Foundation. She also was convicted of lying on her taxes about the amount of charitable contributions she made and providing false information on her congressional financial disclosure forms.
