CHICAGO - Prosecutors have said at a status hearing in Chicago that they do not intend to retry former media mogul Conrad Black on convictions that were tossed out last year by an appellate court.
At the hearing Thursday, Judge Amy St. Eve also set a June 24 resentencing date for Black on the two convictions that were upheld by the appellate judges.
Defence attorneys asked the judge for a June date to give them a chance to file a new appeal with the U.S. Supreme Court. Black did not speak during the hearing.
Authorities had freed the 66-year-old from a Florida prison last year while he while he appealed his 2007 convictions for defrauding investors.
The appellate court had overturned two of those convictions, but upheld two convictions.
