Jurors in Kilpatrick case will be known by number

Posted: Updated:
DETROIT (AP) -

A judge says the names of jurors will be known only to lawyers in the upcoming corruption trial of former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick.

Federal Judge Nancy Edmunds says she's concerned about the privacy of jurors. At a hearing Monday, she said jurors will be identified in court by a number.

More than 100 potential jurors will report to the Detroit courthouse Wednesday to fill out a 22-page questionnaire with more than 100 questions about their views of Kilpatrick, his father Bernard and two other defendants.

The Kilpatricks are accused of taking kickbacks and bribes to steer city business to certain contractors, especially pal Bobby Ferguson.

The jury pool will be trimmed by Sept. 6 when candidates are interviewed in court. The trial's opening statements are possible on Sept. 14.
