    Detroit Corruption

    Former Detroit Councilwoman Monica Conyers wants to stay out of federal prison until a decision is made on her appeal.

    Conyers already won a delay until Sept. 10 to help a family member with medical needs.

    Her lawyer asked a U.S. district judge today to further postpone the 37-month sentence while an appeal is pending.

    Prosecutors have until Aug. 12 to respond.

    Conyers faces prison for corruption during her time at Detroit City Hall. Her appeal centers on Judge Avern Cohn’s refusal to allow her to withdraw her guilty plea on the day she was sentenced.
