Judge says lawyer who leaked Kilpatrick texts ‘not a hero’

“Wayne County Circuit Judge Michael Callahan said attorney Michael Stefani, who secretly gave copies of former Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick’s revealing text messages to a newspaper reporter, is far from heroic,” according to a story in The Detroit News.

“‘He’s not a hero, not to me,’ Callahan said.

“Callahan, whose orders Stefani allegedly violated to obtain the text messages that toppled Kilpatrick and led to his perjury conviction, said Friday Stefani could lose his law license.”
