Reportedly, Brown defrauded thousands of veterans, military service members, and their families. He was charged with one count for conspiracy to commit wire fraud and one count for conspiracy to commit money laundering.

Brown is ordered to pay $2.3 million in restitution, and he will be placed on supervised release for at least three years after being released from jail.
