Former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, who was sentenced to the longest politicalKwame Kilpatrick3 corruption sentence in this nation’s history, seems to managing well in prison.

Kwame’s son, Jalil, posted a picture of his father on Twitter, showing the former mayor smiling in his prison uniform with the caption “Happy BDAY DADDY SEE YOU SOON! #freekmk”.

In the picture, Kilpatrick, 44, is smiling for the camera, seemingly in good spirits.

Kwame Kilpatrick was sentenced to 28 years in federal prison by Judge Nancy Edmonds in October of last year.

“The government has asked for a sentence of 28 years — I believe that is in fact what his sentence should be,” Edmunds said during sentencing.

Kilpatrick’s attorney attempted to point to the good he’d done in order to gain the judge’s sympathy.

“After his inauguration in January 2002, he worked 18-hour days with some regularity,” Kilpatrick’s attorney Harold Gurewitz wrote. “He showed up at crime scenes and on the streets to make sure they were cleared after snowfalls.”

The argument didn’t work and Judge Edmunds threw the book at Kilpatrick.

In addition to serving out his prison sentence, Kilpatrick is also expected to pay nearly $4.6  million dollars in restitution for his corruption. Kilpatrick’s attorney argued, according to the Detroit Free Press, that there was no evidence that Detroit suffered a loss due to Kilpatrick’s dealings with contractor Bobby Ferguson.

“There was a lot of testimony in this case that Mr. Ferguson received millions of dollars for work that wasn’t done at all,” Judge Edmunds explained.

It is still unlikely that the government will get any of that money back considering the amount that Kilpatrick has spent in legal fees and that he has no income while behind bars.

Kilpatrick also owes $854,000 from the text message scandal.

  1. I needed to thank you for this wonderful read!! I certainly loved every bit of it. I have got you bookmarked to look at new things you post…

  2. Way cool! Some very valid points! I appreciate you penning this post and the rest of the website is very good.

  3. Open Tibia (Servers), often abbreviated as OT or OTS are Tibia game servers not hosted by CipSoft GmbH and are using open source technology created from scratch. They are illegal by the rules of Tibia and connecting to them using Cipsoft’s Tibia client is illegal by law, however the Open Tibia servers can be legally used.

  4. I’m a big fan of online colleges. I think everyone else should be too.

  11. Your style is unique compared to other folks I have read stuff from. Thanks for posting when you have the opportunity, Guess I’ll just book mark this site.

  12. To connect with the Open Tibia game server you can often use the official Tibia Client, although you need to change the IP Address to which you connect, some Open Tibia servers are having custom client to connect with. This is because your client must connect to the OT server, and not to the official game server. There is software available to do this. Open Tibia servers have often a changed game mechanism with a different loot rates (items are dropped more or less frequently), different experience rates (you gain your next level faster or slower), different skill rates (you gain higher skills faster or slower), custom NPC’s, monsters, quests and so on. Some OTS’s are even completly changing the gameplay. Mostly the map is also different than the usual tibia map, mostly smaller (but some maps are bigger than Cipsoft’s one). Often the OTS owner offers premium accounts, items and other advantages for sale, for real life money.
