Kilpatrick corruption trial
The jury has spoken in the federal corruption trial of former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, and he’s been remanded into custody.
Prosecutor Michael Bullotta argued Kilpatrick had a problem obeying orders and belonged behind bars. With his access to money, Kilpatrick is a flight risk, the prosecutor argued.
This morning, federal prosecutors called witnesses from financial firms in Chicago and Seattle that managed parts of the city’s pension funds.
