Former ‘Last Chance U’ coach Jason Brown has been charged with eight felony charges on Friday. He allegedly attempted to silence local newspapers, according to the Parsons Sun.
Brown — who resigned as the coach in February — is charged with four counts of blackmail. In addition, he is also charged with four counts of identity theft.
Those are not all the charges that he is facing, as he is also facing two misdemeanors for two counts of criminal false communication.
According to the Montgomery County Chronicle Facebook page, no hearing has been announced yet for these charges. Brown also allegedly victimized the Independence Daily Reporter.
These incidents allegedly “occurred in the final month’s of Brown’s coaching stint at Independence Community College. The papers allegedly received cease-and-desist emails from an attorney, which allegedly came from the Cochran Law Firm of Los Angeles, California, who allegedly claimed to represent Brown.
The emails came following a fight between Brown’s Independence team and the Garden City football teams.
After the emails that were allegedly sent by Brown that represented a lawyer, more communications came in February. This came after one of the paper’s investigated the treatment of a German player by Brown.
“I am your new Hitler,” Brown allegedly texted the German player, according to the paper. This allegedly led to Brown’s resignation.
Brown — who was allegedly trying to cover his tracks — also allegedly sent the emails from the lawyer to a reporter and a former Independence assistant coach.
The Chronicle through their investigation began to question the emails. The newspaper then turned the emails over to the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Department to investigate.
According to the Parsons Sun, this news comes on the heels of Independence Community College President Dan Barwick, who was also featured in ‘Last Chance U.’
The new season of ‘Last Chance U’ is expected to begin on July 19th, which is the fourth season of this show. It’ll also reportedly have coverage of Brown’s resignation.
