McGee order reversed; will remain in custody

A federal judge has ordered Milwaukee Ald. Michael McGee Jr. remain in custody pending trial.

The order reverses a Monday decision by a magistrate judge that he could be released on $10,000 bail.

Also yesterday, a grand jury issued a formal indictment against McGee, alleging five counts of bribery, three counts of extortion and one count of failure to report a large cash transaction.

He is due again in federal court Monday, and in state court on Friday.
