The Supreme Court has denied former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick's request for a new trial.
A federal jury convicted Kilpatrick of racketeering, bribery, and other corruption charges back in 2013. The ex-mayor is serving a 28 year prison sentence.
Kilpatrick has argued that his lawyer had a serious conflict of interest for the lengthy trial.
His appeal was sent to the justices for review.
Despite the denial, his case isn't completely dead. Kilpatrick can still try a habeas claim, but he'll have to pay for that himself.
