DETROIT – A Michigan sheriff says former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick will not mix with other inmates when he reports to jail under his plea deal in a sex-and-misconduct scandal.
Wayne County Sheriff Warren Evans said Monday that Kilpatrick won't get any special treatment although he will be kept out of the general jail population because of his notoriety.
Kilpatrick begins a 120-day sentence Tuesday for obstruction of justice for lying in a civil trial involving former police officers. He pleaded guilty and resigned as part of a plea deal last month.
Kilpatrick will be in his 15-by-10-foot cell 23 hours a day, with one hour out for recreation.
He will be billed for his stay at $60 a day. With good behavior, he could get 20 days cut off his sentence.
