Federal judge delays Kwame Kilpatrick's sentencing

DETROIT (AP) -

Sentencing has been delayed for ex-Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick on his public corruption conviction.

Federal Judge Nancy Edmunds moved Kilpatrick's sentencing from Sept. 3 to Oct. 10 during a Thursday hearing. Kilpatrick's lawyer sought a deadline extension to file objections to a presentence report.

Objections now are due Sept. 9.

Kilpatrick's father, Bernard, and close friend Bobby Ferguson are also being sentenced on later dates.

Ferguson's sentencing will also be Oct. 10. Bernard Kilpatrick will be sentenced Oct. 17.

Kwame 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 this week upheld Edmunds' decision to deny bond and keep Kwame Kilpatrick behind bars ahead of sentencing.
