DETROIT (WKZO) -- Federal prosecutors in Detroit, including the team which worked on the corruption case against former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick and two others, may face a ten-percent reduction in pay because of the government sequester cuts.  All of the nearly 260 employees at the U.S. Attorney's office in Detroit recently received notices about the possibility of furlough days, and many have agreed to take one day off every two weeks without pay.  The furloughs would go into effect next month and end in September.
