WASHINGTON (AP) - Former D.C. Council chairman Kwame Brown will be in court for a hearing on an unspecified violation.

Brown pleaded guilty in June to bank fraud and a misdemeanor campaign finance violation and resigned as council chairman.

He faces up to 6 months in prison on each offense but could ultimately be spared prison time.

He is cooperating with prosecutors in ongoing investigations.

The U.S. Attorney's Office and Brown's attorney have not commented on the reasons for Tuesday's hearing.

Brown's plea agreement calls on him to be truthful with authorities and to fully disclose his personal finances, among other obligations.
