Former aide to DeKalb DA pleads guilty to 10 felonies

A former assistant in the DeKalb prosecutor’s office has pleaded guilty to using her government charge card for car repairs, property taxes and plane tickets.

Clarissa Brown, who was fired from DeKalb District Attorney Robert James’ office in November 2013, will repay the $4,763 she misspent, perform 200 hours of community service and serve up to seven years on probation.

Brown pleaded guilty to 10 felony counts but avoided prison time as a first-time offender who agreed to plead guilty through an agreement with prosecutors.

Gwinnett County District Attorney Danny Porter, whose office handled the case, said the sentence was sufficient.
