I was out of touch for a couple of days last week-new puppy issues, then I got a cold.
Anyways, on Thursday, Kwame was sentenced in federal court to 28 years for mulitple convictions including racketeering. Bobby Ferguson, the contracter/co-conspirator, received 20 years on Friday from the same judge.
Funny Detroit weirdness: Kwame cried at his sentencing, after making a plea for mercy. The only mercy he got was the judge told him she'd recommend he serve his sentence at a prison in Texas, where his wife and kids currently reside. Said wife and kids were not at the hearing.
Bobby F just read the Bible, quoted various scripture in his plea for mercy. This is the guy who had filled the inside of a wall of his house with the cash he stole.
Kwame's former mistress and chief of staff did the smart thing and cooperated with the feds, so she was never charged in federal court. This info was not released though until after the sentencing was finished.
