Ex-Detroit Mayor Released From Prison

JACKSON, Mich., Aug. 2 (UPI) — Former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick was released from prison Tuesday and will go to Texas to rejoin his family, officials said.

Kilpatrick, 41, was allowed to transfer supervision of his two-year parole to Texas, where his wife and sons live in Grand Prairie, a Dallas suburb, The Detroit News reported.

Kilpatrick wore a light colored shirt and dark pants or jeans when he left the G. Robert Cotton Correctional Facility in Jackson, The Detroit Free Press reported.

Kilpatrick used social media such as Twitter to share his thoughts about jail and being released.

“All I can dream about is being united with my family. Hurry up Tuesday!” one Twitter post read.

Kilpatrick is expected to go to Texas within the next 24 hours, where he will report to parole officials who will supervise him until his parole ends, the Free Press said.

The disgraced ex-mayor was sent to prison in March 2010 by Wayne County Circuit Judge David Groner, who ruled Kilpatrick violated terms of his probation by hiding personal finances from the court. The probation arose from Kilpatrick’s admitting he lied when he testified in a whistle-blower lawsuit filed by former Detroit police officers who said they were expected to facilitate and hide Kilpatrick’s extramarital affairs.
