WASHINGTON (AP) - The sentencing of former D.C. Council Chairman Kwame Brown has been delayed until November.

Brown resigned his seat in June and pleaded guilty to bank fraud and a misdemeanor campaign finance violation.

He admitted that he lied about his income on bank loan applications, one of which allowed him to buy a powerboat. His sentencing had been scheduled for Sept. 20.

On Monday, a federal judge granted a motion to delay it to allow Brown to "complete his cooperation" with prosecutors.

He will now be sentenced Nov. 12. Brown faces a maximum of six months in prison on the bank fraud conviction.

The campaign finance violation also carries a possible six-month term.
