We trust the legal process as it moves forward," the council spokesperson wrote in a March 9 statement about Brown's arrest. "We are awaiting additional information to determine next steps.  We will not be able to discuss the details of personnel matters publicly. However, we understand the gravity of these charges."

Brown worked in Richmond for 24 years.
