Former Birmingham Mayor Larry Langford has lost an appeal of his conviction on bribery, conspiracy, money laundering and other charges.

The U.S. 11th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Friday turned down Langford's appeal of his conviction on 60 counts concerning his activities when he was president of the Jefferson County Commission. The 65-year-old Langford asked that his 2009 conviction be overturned because his attorneys said the evidence was insufficient to sustain some of his convictions.

A three-judge panel of the 11th Circuit ruled it could not find any basis to overturn Langford's conviction. Langford was mayor of Birmingham at the time of his conviction.

He is serving a 15-year prison sentence at a federal prison in Ashland, Ky. Langford was accused of receiving more than $240,000 in bribes.
