Ex-Detroit Mayor Convicted, Kwame Kilpatrick Jailed

Ex-Detroit Mayor Convicted, Kwame Kilpatrick Taken into Custody


ST LOUIS (LALATE) – An ex-Detroit Mayor has been convicted of racketeering. Kwame Kilpatrick as ex-Detroit Mayor has been in and out of custody for years. Now he is back in jail pending sentencing.

First, in 2008, the Detroit Free Press published excerpts of the text messages between then-Chief of Staff Christine Beatty and the then Detroit mayor. As the two denied a relationship, the paper released 14,000 texts. Kilpatrick was eventually charged with perjury, obstruction of justice and misconduct in office.

In 2010 he agreed to an obstruction of justice plea. He then served time for violating his bond in the text message scandal. Finally in May he was sentenced to five years for probation violations.

Then in December 2010, he was charged by a federal court. He was named as a co-defendant in a federal RICO indictment. Named along with Kilpatrick was Bobby Ferguson, his father Bernard Kilpatrick (Maestro Associates), Victor Mercado (a former city official with the Water and Sewerage Department), and Derrick Miller (his former deputy chief of staff).

Today Kilpatrick was convicted of many of those charges including racketeering conspiracy, extortion and the filing of false tax returns. Ferguson was found guilty of racketeering and extortion. And Kilpatrick’s father was found guilty of a single tax count.

“While he enjoyed a lavish lifestyle, he watched the quality of life erode for the people of Detroit,” Barbara McQuade, U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Michigan, said in a news statement today. “The mayor was not focused on running the city. He was focused on using the mayor’s office as a money-making machine.”

ST LOUIS (LALATE) – Kwame Kilpatrick will be released promptly, parole board voted today. Kwame Kilpatrick, the former Detroit mayor tied to a Christine Beatty texts scandal in 2008, will be released this July, the Board voted Friday.

Kwame Kilpatrick’s first troubles started with Christine Betty’s text messages released in 2008. The Detroit Free Press published excerpts of the scandal text messages between then Chief of Staff Christine Beatty and the then Detroit mayor. Kilpatrick got charged for perjury, obstruction of justice and misconduct in office stemming from his relationship with Christine Betty and for firing a police official. He then served time for violating his bond.

Kilpatrick later agreed to an obstruction of justice plea. Finally in May 2010 he was sentenced to five years for probation violations.

But his legal troubles are not over. In 2012, he will face federal corruption charges. In December last year Kwame Kilpatrick, Bobby Ferguson, Bernard Kilpatrick were indicted on various federal charges. Kilpatrick was among the defendants in a 38-count criminal RICO indictment which accuses him of using campaign funds for “witness tampering and obstruction of justice.”
