Convicted developer's bail is revoked

August 01, 1996|By Caitlin Francke | Caitlin Francke,SUN STAFF

Convicted money-launderer Philip Manglitz will remain behind bars until he is sentenced Sept. 8 for his role in a western Howard County drug ring, a federal judge ruled last week.

U.S. District Judge Herbert Maletz revoked the Glenwood developer's $1.3 million personal recognizance bond Friday after hearing in federal court. Three weeks ago, Manglitz -- who faces up to life in prison in the money-laundering and drug conspiracy case -- was charged with witness intimidation. He has been jailed since his July 10 arrest on that charge.

Maletz initially had allowed Manglitz to remain free -- under electronic monitoring -- until his sentencing so he could make arrangements for the care of his two children, said Assistant U.S. Attorney Richard Kay.

A trial date has not been set in the witness intimidation case, in which prosecutors allege that Manglitz, 48, sent threatening correspondence to a woman he believed was telling federal authorities about his alleged plans to leave the country.

Meanwhile, Manglitz's attorneys have asked for a new trial in the money-laundering case. That conviction came on June 24. Defense attorneys declined to discuss their request.
