Disgraced former D.C. Councilman Kwame Brown received a stern lecture Tuesday after he failed to comply with a judge’s orders before he is to be sentenced on bank fraud charges.

Brown failed to check in via phone with pretrial services three times, most recently, on Sept. 10th. U.S. District Judge Richard Leon ordered Brown to now appear in person once a week to check in.

He also was ordered to have a curfew of 11 p.m. to 6:30 a.m. every night.

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

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

He is cooperating with prosecutors in the ongoing investigations.

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