Kwame Kilpatrick Sentenced For Parole Violation

Some people learn the hard way:

Ex-Detroit Mayor Gets 18 Months To Five Years In Prison For Violating Probation
Disgraced ex-Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick was sentenced today to 18 months to five years in prison for violating his probation by not disclosing assets as required under a plea deal.

Judge David Groner slammed Kilpatrick in court today, saying that "your testimony in this court amounted to perjury" and that "the initial 120 days incarceration did nothing to rehabilitate you."

"Probation is no longer an option," Groner said. "That ship has sailed."
