What's the Deal Kwame?!? The Resolution.

Here's the follow up to my first Kwame Kilpatrick side-rant, "What's the Deal Kwame?!?" and his legal drama stemming from the sex scandal, obstruction of justice and assault charges still in play from the beginning of the year.

Thursday, Kilpatrick pleaded guilty to two FELONY counts of obstruction of justice and resigned from office as a part of a plea bargain with prosecutors.

The courts decided that a fitting punishment included:
  • Surrender of his law license
  • Forfeit of his state pension
  • Barred from elected office for five years
  • $1 million in restitution paid to the city of Detroit
  • 120 days in the Wayne County jail, followed by five years probation
I hope it was worth it.
