TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Former U.S. Rep. Rick Renzi is seeking a 60-day delay for his opening brief filing as he appeals his convictions on public corruption and money laundering charges.

Renzi's brief is due Friday with the 9th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals. His motion seeks an extension until April 8, citing the case's complexity.

Renzi was to have started serving his three-year prison sentence last month. That's been temporarily delayed pending court action on his appeal.

Federal prosecutors are opposing Renzi's request to remain out of prison while he appeals his June 2013 convictions.

Renzi represented Arizona's 1st Congressional District from 2003 to 2009.

He didn't run for re-election in 2008 while facing a federal indictment. He was accused of looting a family insurance business to help pay for his 2002 campaign.
