Brown helped Pugh defraud purchasers of the children’s books and helped her solicit nonprofits to buy them.
Prosecutors said he was her right-hand man from start to finish and was motivated by political gain.
The state brought charges against him the day before he was set to begin an appointment in the Maryland House of Delegates.
Pugh is currently serving her sentence at the Federal Correctional Institution Aliceville, a low-security prison for women in Aliceville, Alabama.
