DETROIT (WKZO) -- U.S. District Court Judge Nancy Edmunds sentenced former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick to 28-years in prison.

Kilpatrick was sentenced on a total of 24 counts including racketeering, tax, and fraud charges.  The judge spent time reviewing the evidence in the case and noted that Kilpatrick used his influence as mayor to steer an astounding amount of business to his co-defendant Bobby Ferguson.

Edmunds also ordered Kilpatrick to pay restitution and a hearing on the that issue will be held in 90 days.
