Former congressional candidate Shaun Brown found guilty of fraud

NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) -- Former congressional candidate Shaun Brown has been convicted of using a summer food service program to defraud the federal government of hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Brown, 59, was found guilty Tuesday by a federal jury on charges of conspiracy, two counts of wire fraud and one count of theft of government funds.

According to prosecutors, over the summer of 2012, Brown inflated the number of meals her non-profit JOBS Community Development Corporation served to low-income children, and "orchestrated a massive scheme" to falsify hundreds of documents to support the claims.
