Wayne County Circuit Court Judge David Groner issued a blistering order against Ex-Detroit mayor Kwame Kilpatrick this week, accusing him of lying and hiding money. Groner ordered Kilpatrick to pay more than $300,000 within 90 days — more than the amount actually requested by the prosecutors.
Kilpatrick is accused of moving money around and putting it into accounts under his wife’s name to avoid paying the $1 million stipulated in his plea agreement. Groner stated that “[t]he court finds the defendant’s conduct in this matter reprehensible. The defendant had not only continued to flout the orders of this court, but has continued his disregard and contempt for the people of the city of Detroit.”
Kilpatrick was given a job by Covisint, a Texas subsidiary of Detroit-based Compuware.
