Federal prosecutors on Wednesday opposed the $1 million bail application of former Assistant U.S. Attorney Paul Bergrin, who has been indicted on charges of leading a racketeering conspiracy that included the murder of a drug-case witness and the attempted murder of an informant. Bergrin, accused in a 14-count indictment of witness tampering, wire fraud, money laundering and drug trafficking, asked a U.S. magistrate judge in Newark, N.J., to allow him to remain on 24-hour home detention until trial.
