Marin having trouble coming up with $1M cash bond

NEW YORK (AP) Former Brazilian soccer federation president Jose Maria Marin is having trouble coming up with the $1 million he is to post as part of his bond on federal corruption changes.

Arrested in Switzerland in May while preparing to attend at the FIFA Congress, the 83-year-old was extradited to the United States and pleaded not guilty on Nov. 3 to charges of racketeering conspiracy, wire fraud conspiracy and money laundering conspiracy.

U.S. District Judge Raymond J. Dearie set bond at $15 million, including $1 million in cash, a $2 million corporate surety bond and a mortgage on a Manhattan apartment. All were due to be given to the court's clerk by Nov. 6.
