Kwame Kilpatrick, President's Pardon

Incarcerated Ex-Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick Begs Trump to Commute His Sentence


Former Detroit mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, who is serving 28 years in prison, is pleading with President Donald Trump to commute his sentence to time served.

Kilpatrick is motivated since President Trump pardoned filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza (who was thrown into prison by the Justice Department under the Obama administration) and a 63-year-old grandmother who was sentenced to life in prison on drug charges as a first offender.

Kilpatrick, 47, was sentenced in 2013 to serve 28 years in prison on multiple counts of extortion, bribery, conspiracy and racketeering.

The former mayor was accused of funneling cash bribes into secret bank accounts and diverting city funds into his own pockets.

Kilpatrick, who served as Detroit mayor from 2001 to 2008, also placed his father and other family members on the city’s payroll, as well as enriched his friends who helped him get elected.

If Trump ignores his request, Kilpatrick will languish behind bars until 2037.

  1. Woooaah 28 years is a long sentence. Child Molesters, Murders and Wall Street Bankers did not get even a quarter of that kind of time.

  2. This man was a terrible disgrace as mayor. With all the damage that he’s responsible for he deserves to serve his time. He had an opportunity to make a difference but instead let power and abhorrent greed guide him as mayor.

  8. Shame deserves harsh punishment. Dare I say that 28 years may be too harsh when white bankers stole more millions upon millions and none of them have seen a jail cell? Wells Fargo execs got retirement packages and not jail sentence. I think they should cut Kwame’s sentence down to 20 years.
