Ex-Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick is making new moves in his fight to get a 2013 racketeering conviction overturned. 

Kilpatrick's attorney filed a motion June 30 with the U.S. District Court in an attempt to vacate the verdict, citing court errors present in his case.

The U.S. Supreme Court denied to take up the former mayor's request for a new trial back in 2016. 

In 2013, a federal jury convicted Kilpatrick of racketeering, bribery, and other corruption charges. 

The ex-mayor is currently serving a 28-year prison sentence.
