The former Detroit mayor was sentenced yesterday to five years in prison for violating the terms of his probation. Kilpatrick only paid the city a portion of what he owed and then failed to report all of his assets during numerous court hearings. Yesterday Judge David Groner told Kilpatrick he hadn't learned anything during his probation, saying, "most compelling is that you lied to this court, continued to lie after pleading guilty to lying to the court." Noah Ovshinsky, reporter for WDET in Detroit, details the latest.
