Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell has asked the U.S. Supreme Court to allow him to remain free while he appeals his corruption conviction to the high court.
McDonnell’s defense team filed the emergency stay request hours after the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond rejected a similar plea Thursday, effectively ordering him to report to prison. His petition asks for the appeals court decision to be delayed or that he be allowed to remain out on bond.
