DETROIT (WXYZ) - Federal prosecutors are asking for Bobby Ferguson to serve 14 to 28 years in prison for his City Hall corruption case conviction earlier this year, according to the sentencing memorandum prosecutors filed Thursday.
Ferguson and his friend former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick were convicted by a jury of racketeering and other charges in March. Kilpatrick's dad, Bernard was convicted of tax evasion.
Kilpatrick and Ferguson are currently behind bars without bond. They are scheduled to be sentenced next week, October 10. Federal prosecutors are expected to also submit a sentencing memorandum on Kwame Kilpatrick later Thursday.
