DETROIT (WKZO) -- Deal...What deal? First came reports from undisclosed sources close to Kwame Kilpatrick that he had rejected a deal from federal prosecutors. He is scheduled to go on trial on 16 federal charges including racketeering this September. The reports stated that they had offered to limit his sentence to 15 years in exchange for a guilty plea on some of the charges he faces.
Then came word that there had been no offer from federal prosecutors. It didn’t come from the Justice Department but from Kilpatrick’s own attorney, James Thomas.
Maybe its wishful thinking. Kilpatrick faces up to 30-years if convicted on the most serious charges against him.
