Court Upholds Decision To Keep Rubashkin In Custody

Former Postville meat plant executive Sholom Rubashkin should remain in custody prior to his sentencing on 86 financial fraud charges, a federal appeals court ruled on Friday.

The U.S. Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a judge’s decision to hold Rubashkin without bail, before he is sentenced on financial fraud charges.

Rubashkin, 50, was convicted in November of charges that included mail, bank and wire fraud, making false statements to a bank, and failing to pay cattle providers in the time required by law. Prosecutors have said the former vice president at Agriprocessors, Inc., faces a recommended prison sentence of 21 to 27 years.

A sentencing date for Rubashkin is not yet set.
