Staying Put: Jimmy Dimora will not be released before sentencing

AKRON, OH (WOIO) -

Jimmy Dimora's request for a "get-out-of-jail free card" has been denied.@

Federal Court Judge Sara Lioi denied the former Cuyahoga County Commissioner's motion to be released pending his sentencing.

Dimora was found guilty in March of multiple corruption-related charges.

At the time, the government moved to revoke bond for Dimora and co-defendent Michael Gabor --  calling Dimora a "flight risk."

Dimora faces anywhere from 16 to 20 years behind bars.
