Kwame Kilpatrick Ex-Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick has been found guilty of corruption. The Grand Prairie native was initially charged with 30 crimes, including bribery, extortion and tax evasion after he turned the mayor’s office into a casino, accepting bribes and other monetary “gifts” from Detroit natives wanting licenses to run city businesses.

Kilpatrick also fixed contracts to benefit a construction company owned by his friend Bobby Ferguson in exchange for a portion of the profits.

Ferguson and Kilpatrick’s father, Bernard Kilpatrick, were co-defendants in the case.

The ex-mayor, who left office in 2008, is facing a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison.
