Mixed Reaction To Detroit Ex-mayor’s Prison Sentence
NICQUEL TERRY, Associated Press Writer
DETROIT (AP) — Ex-Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick continues to divide the city he used to lead.
A man driving a convertible in front of the Detroit courthouse where Kilpatrick was sentenced Tuesday yelled, ‘Free Kwame,’ while a woman standing outside expressed how pleased she was with the defendant’s prison sentence.
A judge sentenced Kilpatrick to 18 months to five years in prison for violating the terms of his probation.
Some standing outside the courthouse said he deserved his sentence. Others thought it was unfair.
Dorothea Walker, of Eastpointe, says Kilpatrick “destroyed Detroit” and needs to pay for his actions.
