Convict gets two more years for jumping bail

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - A former Hoover man got two years added to his prison sentence Wednesday after jumping bail.

U.S. Attorney Joyce White Vance, in a statement to FOX6 News, said Dennis Lloyd Brown, 41, will now serve more than five years in prison for illegally copying and selling more than 12,000 DVD's and 300 CD's.  Brown was convicted and sentenced in March 2008 to 42 months in prison for the crimes, but did not show up in April 2008 to begin serving time.

Vance said U.S. Marshals found Brown 13 months later in Florida. He pleaded guilty to the flight charge.

Wednesday, U.S. District Judge James Hancock added 21 months to Brown's sentence for jumping bail.

Vance said according to Brown's plea agreement in January 2008, Brown operated his illegal business out of a Birmingham residence in 2007, selling pirated videos and music from about noon to 7 p.m. most days. After police discovered the operation, they seized 12,750 DVDs of counterfeited movies, 330 CDs of counterfeited music, $1,119, a computer, several towers of DVD burners and surveillance equipment.
