Herb Vederman, named as a co-conspirator in the corruption case against U.S. Rep. Chaka Fattah, was in court Wednesday to hear the charges against him.

Vederman appeared in federal court in Philadelphia Wednesday afternoon and did not enter a plea.

Vederman heard the charges against him in a hearing that lasted about 10 minutes.

Vederman faces eight counts, including racketeering, bribery and money laundering.

He was released on $100,000 signature bond and did not have to place cash for bail.

A judge restricted his travel to the eastern district of Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Florida.

Vederman is charged in the corruption case against U.S. Rep. Fattah. Vederman is a former deputy mayor of Philadelphia in the Ed Rendell administration.

Fattah and three others named in the case have not officially heard the charges against them.
