Prosecutors Seek 28 Years in Prison for Kilpatrick

Federal prosecutors asked a judge to sentence former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick (D) "to at least 28 years in prison for his multitude of crimes -- a request that raised eyebrows within the legal community as some experts said Kilpatrick could get the stiffest punishment for public corruption in U.S. history," the Detroit Free Press reports.

"The government says he deserves it, noting Kilpatrick's sentencing guidelines call for up to life in prison."
