Pettus-Brown Needs A Lawyer

Lashawn Pettus-Brown needs a new lawyer. And his trial is only six days away.

Pettus-Brown is accused of taking 184-thousand dollars from the city of Cincinnati to renovate the Empire Theater and then skipping town.

Pettus-Brown sent a letter to the federal judge in the case Wednesday stating that his attorney Ken Lawson withdrew from the case. No reason was given.
