Court Denies Kilpatrick’s Appeal

Kilpatrick To Remain In Jail Until At Least Next Summer

DETROIT — The Michigan Court of Appeals said it won’t hear an appeal from former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick who is in prison for violating probation.

A three-judge panel said Wednesday there’s a “lack of merit” to the case.

The decision means Kilpatrick will be in prison at least until next summer unless the state Supreme Court intervenes.

In May, Wayne County Judge David Groner found Kilpatrick guilty of violating probation for failing to make stepped-up restitution payments in connection with a conviction on two felony counts of obstruction of justice.

Kilpatrick was sentenced to serve a minimum of a year and half to a maximum of five years, minus 120 days for time already served.

Kilpatrick began serving his sentence in July and several weeks later, he was moved to a low security prison in Milan, Mich.

Kilpatrick’s legal problems have continued to grow since his probation violation sentencing. In June, he was pleaded not guilty to a 19-count federal grand jury indictment in connection with tax fraud allegations.
