Brown waives right to appeal

This should come as no surprise, considering he received no prison time, but former Rep. Steve Brown, D-St. Louis, filed a waiver of his right to appeal today in U. S. District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri.

Brown was sentenced to two years of probation and a $50,000 fine Tuesday. His co-conspirator, former Sen. Jeff Smith, D-St. Louis, was sentenced to one year and one day in prison and fined $40,000.
