DETROIT (AP) -

A federal judge has denied a request by a friend of ex-Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick to be released on bond while he awaits sentencing.

U.S. District Judge Nancy Edmunds made the bond denial decision for Bobby Ferguson in an order Friday, saying he might be a flight risk.

Federal prosecutors opposed the request from Ferguson. His lawyer had argued that Ferguson wasn't a flight risk or danger to the public.

A federal jury on March 11 found Kilpatrick and Ferguson guilty on multiple counts, including racketeering conspiracy.

Edmunds last month denied a request from Kilpatrick to be released on bond while he awaits sentencing.
