CELEBRITY CRIME FILES: KWAME KILPATRICK 

By Amber B

In 2001, at just 31 years old, Kwame Kilpatrick was the youngest candidate ever to be elected mayor of Detroit.  From the get-go many of his decisions were considered unpopular, including the closing of the zoo and aquarium in order to balance a budget deficit.  Despite a rocky first term, and a less than stellar re-election campaign, Kilpatrick returned to his post for a second term in 2005.  With the city continuing to slide into economic crisis he blamed the media for the mess.

But secretly it was alleged that Kilpatrick was using his authorityover the Detroit Water and Sewer board to get kick backs after providing more than $80 million in lucrative contracts to his cronies.

On March 11, 2013, he and his longtime contractor friend Bobby Ferguson were convicted of racketeering and extortion following a lengthy corruptioninvestigation. Kilpatrick was convicted on 24 of 30 counts, including five counts of extortion, racketeering, bribery and several mail, wire and tax fraud charges. Ferguson was found guilty on nine of 11 counts. Kilpatrick’s father, Bernard Kilpatrick, was convicted on a tax charge.
