Former East Texan Sentenced to 11 Years For Scam

A former Gladewater man allegedly scammed them out of $10 million. 43 year old Roy Lynn Brown was sentenced to 11 years in jail Monday in a Dallas federal courtroom.

Prosecutors say Brown persuaded the victims, many from east Texas, to invest in several companies. Some of the businesses were legitimate, but many were fraudulent.

Two of brown's business partners are already serving federal sentences for their parts in the scams.
