A divided Florida Supreme Court on Thursday ordered resentencing for a Death Row inmate who was convicted in the 2004 sexual assault and murder of 11-year-old Carlie Brucia --- a Sarasota County case that drew national attention.

Upwards of 200 people wrote letters on behalf and against former Congresswoman Corrine Brown prior to her sentencing in a fraud trial earlier this month.

Former Congresswoman Corrine Brown is hoping an appellate court overturns her fraud convictions after her sentencing Monday.

But one former Department of Justice prosecutor thinks the only thing certain about her chances is uncertainty.


Federal Judge Timothy Corrigan ruled Wednesday that former Congresswoman Corrine Brown is not entitled to a new trial and should not be acquitted of 18 counts of fraud.

The Florida Supreme Court is considering more cases thrown into doubt by a US Supreme Court ruling earlier this year.  Nick Evans reports.
