2014 investigation prompts Brown probe

CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) - Cook County Circuit Court Clerk Dorothy Brown is facing more scrutiny from law enforcement, including a federal probe focusing in part on personnel decisions made by her office.

Sources say the U.S. attorney’s office in Chicago has an active grand jury looking into Brown’s conduct, including loans she may have received from employees “in connection to employment.”

As the story develops, take a look back at AN investigation by FOX 32's Dane Placko that was done two years ago and prompted the probe.
