BATON ROUGE-- Convicted felon and former St. Gabriel Mayor will plead for his freedom in federal court Tuesday morning.  U.S. Marshals cuffed George Grace and took him away minutes after he was convicted on 7 of 13 corruption counts late Saturday afternoon.  Federal Prosecutors believe Grace is a flight risk because of the property he owns in Uganda.

Grace's attorney, Lewis Unglesby, said Grace is not a flight risk.

News 2's Stephanie Ryan will have more on News 2 tonight at 5pm and 6pm.
