    Kwame Brown

    Former D.C. Council Chairman Kwame Brown is almost a free man.

    His six-month house arrest stemming from a bank fraud charge ended Sunday, however he remains on probation until November.

    Brown pleaded guilty June 8 to felony bank fraud in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. He admitted to providing false documentation to secure two personal loans totaling more than $220,000.

    On a document that listed Brown's consulting income as $35,000, he changed the "3" to an "8," according to a press release from the office of U.S. Attorney Ronald C. Machen Jr.

    He later resigned from the city council.
