Rubashkin files second appeal on bail

CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -- Sholom Rubashkin filed a second appeal asking to be released on bail.

The former Vice President of Agriprocessors in Postville is requesting all judges in the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals review the detention order.

The appeal adds the circuit court of appeals and the district court do not have the right to deny bail pending a sentence.

The 51-year-old was convicted on 86 counts of financial fraud last November, following the May 2008 immigration raid at Agriprocessors.
