Lawyer for Bernard Madoff Ex-Finance Chief Frank DiPascali Seeks Bail in Exchange for Cooperation Leading to Three Arrests

DiPascali, who pleaded guilty in August to 10 criminal charges and has been denied bail, asked a Manhattan federal court judge through his lawyer to release him from jail into house arrest.

A judge has denied previous requests by his lawyers and U.S. prosecutors for his release until sentencing next year.

A lawyer for Bernard Madoff's former finance chief has made a fresh bid to spring his client from prison on bail, saying his cooperation led to three arrests.

Lawyer Marc Mukasey (myoo-KAY'-zee) urged a judge in federal court in Manhattan Tuesday to set bail for Frank DiPascali at $10 million.
