Prosecutors Want $4.5 Million from Former Detroit Mayor

Friday, 15 Nov 2013 08:22 AM

Federal prosecutors want former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick to pay about $4.5 million for widespread corruption under his watch.

Kilpatrick began a 28-year prison sentence in October for rigging contracts, taking bribes and putting his own price on public business.

Prosecutors on Thursday filed their recommendation for payment from Kilpatrick. A Dec. 10 hearing is planned in Detroit on the issue before U.S. District Court Judge Nancy Edmunds, who also will decide payment for Kilpatrick's pal, Bobby Ferguson, an excavator convicted in the case.

The Associated Press sent a message seeking comment to lawyers for Kilpatrick on Friday.

Edmunds has filed a preliminary order for Ferguson to pay about $6.3 million in the case. Kilpatrick and Ferguson were convicted in federal court in March.
