Stanford hospitalized as ex-finance chief pleads guilty

Last month, Stanford's spokesman said the jailed financier had hired Washington, D.C.-based attorney Robert Luskin, who also represents former White House political adviser Karl Rove. But Luskin also wants assurances he'll get paid, and Hittner won't release DeGuerin until an attorney takes the case unconditionally.

Stanford, along with three former company executives, have pleaded not guilty to various charges, including wire and mail fraud, in a 21-count indictment issued June 18. Stanford has been jailed without bond since then, considered a flight risk by Hittner.

Also indicted is Leroy King, the former chief executive officer of Antigua's Financial Services Regulatory Commission. King, accused of taking bribes from Stanford to overlook irregularities at his bank, is awaiting extradition to the United States.

Finn said Davis is helping prosecutors with their efforts to extradite King and locate missing money taken from investors.
