Ftouhi's attorney told the judge her client understood, given the seriousness of the charge, that he's not a U-S citizen and he has no ties to MI, that it was unlikely he would get bond.

She said she discussed the detention hearing with Ftouhi that morning and they both agreed that getting out on bond would not be likely given the nature of the offense and the fact that Ftouhi, who lives in Canada, has no ties to MI. She told a federal judge Wednesday that the 49-year-old defendant from Montreal would be held by US immigration authorities even if granted bond in the criminal case.

The prosecutor did not disagree and did not add any comment.
