Guilty Former Detroit Mayor: Corruption, Fraud, RacketeeringSubmitted by Lukapaka on Mon, 03/11/2013 - 18:06
The Federal trial of ex-Detroit city Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick came to a close today. The verdict? Guilty, on almost every charge brought forward (24 of 30, 4 were no verdict). His father Bernard, and his friend Bobby Ferguson were also found guilty for a number of charges.
This isn't the first trial Kwame has faced, but it is definitelly a lot more substantial than the previous one. He will likely be put behind bars for at least 10 years, and possibly up to 50+
