Release from 28-Year Sentence

According to Detroit Free Pass, former politician Kwame has been released 20 years early from his sentence condemned in 2013.

Many Detroiters tried their best to free Kilpatrick, but he was released after former president Donald Trump included Kwame on his clemency list. After the list was released, Kilpatrick was freed from prison in less than 24 hours and rejoined his family in Georgia.

Following Kwame's conviction in 2013, he lost all the appeals, and The U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear his case. He attempted compensation from President Barack Obama, but it was discarded. Later, Kilpatrick shifted his focus towards former president Trump.
