Detroit Mayor’s MugShot Released; Wayne County Sheriff Holds Press Conference
Another one for the scrapbooks. Jailed Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick’s mugshot has been released to the public. This is his second mugshot in months. Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick was jailed Thursday afternoon after a 36th District Court judge found him guilty of violating the terms of his bond.
Wayne County Sheriff Warren Evans held a press conference Thursday afternoon, after the Mayor was safely transported to the Wayne County Jail in Downtown Detroit.
“The Mayor will be treated no better or no worse than every other prisoner in the same situation in the Wayne County Jail,” Evans explained. “The Mayor will be put in a restrictive area for high profile people. This goes in accordance with the policies that dictate how to handle high profile prisoners.”
Wayne County Deputy Sheriff Warren Evans also added that because of the altercation that the Mayor incited between himself and a Wayne County sheriff a few weeks back, Kilpatrick’s involvement with the inside administration ”will be restricted to some extent.” Mayor Kilpatrick will have access to his attorneys and allowed a visitor within 24 hours.
