Chris Petti, a reputed organized crime figure who allegedly helped San Diego businessman Richard T. Silberman launder $300,000 offered by an undercover agent as Colombian cocaine proceeds, was ordered held without bail Thursday by a federal magistrate who called him a threat to society. After a 45-minute hearing, U.S. Magistrate Roger Curtis McKee said prosecutors had persuaded him that Petti, 62, "is a danger to at least some portion of the community" and should remain in custody at the Metropolitan Correctional Center pending a preliminary hearing April 21. Petti's attorney, Oscar Goodman of Las Vegas, said he would appeal McKee's decision to a U.S. District Court judge on Monday.
