Could former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, known as the Hip-Hop major, who held office from 2002 to 2008, be released from a low-security prison in Louisiana after being sentenced in 2013 to 28 years for corruption, racketeering conspiracy, fraud, extortion and tax crimes, which was related to shaking down contractors and rewarding his allies?
The government called the scheme the “Kilpatrick enterprise."
In a February letter to President Trump, the Ebony Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to combating mass incarceration, argued that Kilpatrick's lengthy sentence was not appropriate for his crimes.
Kilpatrick, who has maintained his innocence, filing several appeals, is officially scheduled to be released in January 2037. (Source:FoxNews)
