Monica Conyers: Still Fighting

View Comments

conyers monica booking photo Monica Conyers: Still FightingFormer Detroit city council woman Monica Conyers is spending her final days of freedom–fighting to stay out of prison.

WWJ’s Vickie Thomas reports the one-time media magnet is now maintaining a low profile as she’s due to report to prison in just over a week. However, Detroit political consultant Adolph Mongo has seen Conyers.

He told Vickie, “She’s been around town. But, what can you do when you’ve got this cloud hanging over you? You can’t work … your life is on hold.”

He goes on to say, “Either you begin the sentence, or you fight it like she’s fighting. She’s always been a fighter; a scrappy person.”

Conyers pleaded guilty last year in federal court to bribery charges and was sentenced to three years and she’s attempting to withdraw that guilty plea.
