On Thursday afternoon, the son of a prominent Baltimore defense attorney is sentenced to two years in prison for prostituting three teen girls – ages 14, 16 and 17 – in Baltimore County.
In February, 27-year-old Matthew Warren Brown pleaded guilty to one misdemeanor count of prostitution business. According to the state’s attorney’s office, Brown was profiting from a prostitution operation involving three teenage girls.
Brown issued an apology to his parents and the court.
Matthew Brown’s father, Warren Brown, was not present Thursday, but Circuit Judge Robert E. Cahill Jr. cited a letter to the court that he had written.
After graduating from the Peddie School in New Jersey, Brown went on to complete a degree in communications at Temple. He was a member of the university’s football team and had a B average. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers recruited Brown, so he left school with only one semester left before graduation. After being cut from the Buccaneers and Saskatchewan Roughriders, Brown become depressed because he felt his career was ending, his attorney, Timothy M. Gunning said.
