Virginia ex-governor cannot remain free on bond: court

Former Virginia Governor Robert McDonnell, pictured on January 6, 2015 in Richmond, Virginia, will not remain out of prison while he petitions the US Supreme Court to review his corruption convictionsA federal court on Thursday denied former Virginia governor Robert McDonnell’s request to remain out of prison while he petitions the US Supreme Court to review his corruption convictions. The US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit, based in Virginia’s state capital Richmond, declined to clarify an earlier ruling that McDonnell could remain free on bond while appealing to the nation’s highest court. The mandate in the case will be issued in seven days, the court said, signaling that McDonnell, 61, would then be ordered to report to prison.
