Former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick Sentenced to 28 years In Prison
Just a few months after his conviction for public corruption, U.S. District Judge Nancy Edmunds sentenced former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick to serve 28 years in a federal prison. OUCH!
According to WZZM, Edmunds said "The government has asked for a sentence of 28 years – I believe that is in fact what his sentence should be."
The government called what Kwame was doing a money-making racket out of City Hall that steered millions to himself, his family and his friends while the impoverished city hobbled along.
It's about time these crooked politicians pay for what they do to the people who voted them in. It's just a sad day for my hometown as we had to be the city who had one of the most corrupt.
