kwame kilpatrick Kwame Gets Rejected By Court

Kwame Kilpatrick’s bid to overturn his imprisonment for probation violation was rejected this afternoon by the Michigan Court of Appeals, reports the Detroit Free Press.

In a one-page order signed by Judge Michael Talbot, the court said the appeal is “denied for lack of merit in the grounds presented.

“We are very pleased,” said Maria Miller, spokesperson for the Wayne County Prosecutor’s office. “Obviously we agree with the decision.”

Arnold Reed, a Farmington Hills lawyer handling the appeal and request that the former Detroit mayor be released from his 1½- 5-year prison sentence, said he wasn’t surprised “once I saw who was on the panel.”
