      DETROIT Former Detroit City Councilman Alonzo Bates has been found guilty on
      a bank fraud charge and four counts of stealing public funds.

      But a federal jury was deadlocked on an extortion charge. Prosecutors
      alleged that Bates used a city contractor to perform work on his home. The
      judge declared a mistrial on that charge.

      Bates was indicted shortly after losing his re-election bid last fall.

      Bank fraud carries a sentence of up to 30 years in prison and a (m) million
      dollar fine. The theft charges are punishable by up to ten years and a
      250-thousand dollar fine.

      Sentencing is scheduled for January fourth.
