Kilpatrick imprisoned, faces 1½ to 5 years

Bye Bye Kwame , Enjoy The fruits of your labor !
Oh he will Be fine in the Big house , Maybe he can spend the time learning a new trade .
I bet this somBitch will even collect Unemployment !

Former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick entered the Michigan state prison system today after being sentenced to 1½ to five years for violating his probation.

His imprisonment, imposed today by Wayne County Circuit Judge David Groner, also cost Kilpatrick his job.

“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.”

Leaders across metro Detroit also called the situation unfortunate, but they said it was time to move on.

Earlier, a frustrated Groner 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,” 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.
