DETROIT Sentencing has been delayed for ex-Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick on his public corruption conviction.
Federal Judge Nancy Edmunds at a Thursday hearing moved Kilpatrick's sentencing from Sept. 3 to Oct. 10. Kilpatrick's lawyer had sought a deadline extension to file objections to a presentence report.
Objections now are due Sept. 9.
Sentencing for Kilpatrick's father Bernard and close friend Bobby Ferguson also were pushed back.
Ferguson's new sentencing date also is Oct. 10. Bernard Kilpatrick will be sentenced Oct. 17.
Kilpatrick and Ferguson were convicted in March of a sweeping scheme to enrich themselves through fixed contracts, bribes and kickbacks. Bernard Kilpatrick was convicted of a tax crime.
The U.S. Court of Appeals also this week upheld Edmunds' decision to deny bond and keep Kilpatrick incarcerated prior to sentencing.
