U.S. Attorney: Verdict for former Detroit mayor sends message

by

DETROIT (WKZO) -- U.S. Attorney Barbara McQuade says that the verdict in the Kwame Kilpatrick City Hall corruption trial sends a message to other municipal leaders.  McQuade says that corruption will not be tolerated adding that "Kilpatrick didn't lead the city, he looted the city."

McQuade made the comments just hours after jurors found Kilpatrick, Bobby Ferguson and Bernard Kilpatrick guilty.  Ferguson and Kilpatrick face prison sentences of up to 20 years, however McQuade says there's a chance both men could be behind bars for much longer.
