Bobby Ferguson, a long-time friend of ex-Detroit mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, is expected to be arraigned in federal court Monday on a long list of charges including money laundering, mail fraud and conspiracy.
Ferguson is accused in a multi-million-dollar scheme to rig bids involving work at a former Detroit housing project. Federal investigators say Ferguson directed several of his associates to inflate their bids on the project so he could appear to have the lowest bid.
Ex-mayor Kwame Kilpatrick is also charged federally with 19 criminal counts including mail fraud.
