Kilpatrick hearing mercifully closes

Closing arguments on the Kwame Kilpatrick restitution case start today, signaling the beginning of the end of this particular ring in the Detroit political circus.

A decision is expected by Jan. 20 – not a day too soon.

DETROIT (AP) — Closing arguments in the restitution hearing of ex-Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick are scheduled to start in Wayne County Circuit Court.

Kilpatrick’s attorney has said his client’s $6,000 monthly payment to Detroit should be halved because he makes less money as a salesman for Dallas-based Covisint than he did when that amount was set.

Kilpatrick already has made several $3,000 payments.

Prosecutors are expected to argue that Kilpatrick has not been truthful about his finances.

Judge David Groner says he will issue his ruling Jan. 20.
