Kwame Kilpatrick Before Going To Prison

Kwame Kilpatrick will be off the Compuware Corporation payroll at the end of the month," said a company statement. "We don’t have any choices. It’s an unfortunate situation, and we feel bad for his family, but our hands are tied.” Former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick is heading to prison. Wayne County Judge David Groner sentenced him to one and half to five years.

Kilpatrick was escorted out of the courtroom in handcuffs and will be transported to Jackson, where he will be processed and soon learn which prison will become his new home. Kilpatrick took several deep breaths before he addressed Groner at his sentencing and asked him to show compassion on him.

Earlier today, a frustrated Detroit judge ordered Kilpatrick to serve 18 months to five years in prison, declaring that Kilpatrick had lied while on probation and maliciously hid money that was supposed to go toward repaying the City of Detroit $1 million in restitution.

“Your testimony in this court amounted to perjury,” Wayne County Circuit Judge David Groner said, alluding to the ex-mayor’s explanations for how hundreds of thousands of dollars passed through his family’s bank accounts without being accounted for, or applied to, Kilpatrick’s restitution obligations.
