James Brown's former manager has been sentenced to three years of home confinement on charges he took more money than he was allowed under contract from the late soul singer in his final years.
72-year-old David Cannon of Barnwell entered an Alford plea to two counts of breach of trust. The plea does not admit guilt, but acknowledges there is enough evidence for a conviction.
Prosecutors said Cannon was supposed to receive 5 percent of whatever Brown made in a year but instead gave himself close to 15 percent.
