DISGRACED DETROIT MAYOR GETS 28 YEARS FOR CORRUPTION

0

CHICAGO: Disgraced Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick was sentenced to 28 years in a federal prison on corruption and extortion charges. The sentence comes as the city of Detroit is seeking to shed massive debts he helped rack up in the nation’s largest municipal bankruptcy. Kilpatrick, 43, was convicted in March of two-dozen criminal counts following a sweeping federal investigation into the rigging of municipal and state contracts. Some 33 other people—including city workers and contractors—have also been convicted as a result of the investigation.
