Former SK Foods owner Scott Salyer pleads not guilty

Salyer faces multiple felony charges — including wire fraud, bribery and obstruction of justice — in connection to a federal investigation of his company.
 
Salyer’s attorney, Malcolm Segal, is requesting the court reconsider bail for Salyer, according to federal court documents.
 
Salyer remains in federal custody after a magistrate judge in New York denied him bail last month because he was considered a flight risk.
 
According to the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Salyer’s case will be back in court March 3 to consider Salyer’s detention, which the U.S. Attorney wants to the court to continue.
