And The Verdict Is.....Very Guilty

And the Verdict is announced and its quite a a long one:

Kilpatrick was found guilty of 24 of 30 counts, including racketeering, but the jury apparently couldn't reach a verdict on some of the remaining charges including some bribery charges.

Bernard Kilpatrick was found guilty of only one of the four charges against him, filing a false tax return only and not the racketeering charge. Should be interesting to get the rationale behind that decision.

Joel Ferguson was convicted on nine of eleven counts: racketeering, extortion, and filing false tax returns.

That brings the most overtly corrupt mayoral administration in Detroit to an end.

Note: revised once reporters count their count charges straight.
