Former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick Denied Early Prison Release

05 27 20 Kwame Stays In Prison Vo

According to the federal government, former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick will not be leaving prison early.

Kilpatrick is serving a 28-year sentence for corruption.

Last week, a Detroit-area pastor and the Ebony Foundation announced Kilpatrick would be leaving the prison in Oakdale, Louisiana.

The facility has been hit hard by the coronavirus.

But in a statement late Tuesday, the Bureau of Prisons announced Kilpatrick has been turned down for home confinement.

The bureau is supposed to give priority to inmates who have served a much larger share of their sentence than Kilpatrick. He has served 25%.
