DETROIT (WKZO) -- Former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, his father Bernard Kilpatrick and Bobby Ferguson will not get new trials or be acquitted of charges from their federal corruption case.  Thursday, U.S. District Judge Nancy Edmunds ruled that the jury had sufficient evidence for the convictions, and refused to order new trials or acquittals in the case.

In March, Kwame Kilpatrick and Ferguson were each found guilty of several charges including racketeering conspiracy and remain behind bars in a federal prison, while Bernard Kilpatrick was convicted on a single tax charge.  The three will be sentenced next month.
