DETROIT (AP) -- A Detroit-area lawyer has been charged with bank fraud and money laundering.

The charges against Ken Flaska were filed Friday in Detroit federal court. He's accused of obtaining nearly $2.8 million that belonged to his firm or its clients over a nine-year period.

The charges were filed Friday as a criminal information, which means a negotiated guilty plea is likely. The government says it has seized more than $900,000 from Flaska, including $352,000 from the sale of his Grosse Pointe Park home.

He couldn't immediately be reached for comment Saturday. A phone number is not listed.

Flaska is a longtime sailor in races to Mackinac Island. In 2010, he told Grosse Pointe Magazine that he's sailed in dozen of races in the Great Lakes and international waters.
