Headlining controversial former mayor of Detroit, Kwame Kilpatrick has been granted parole and will be released from his jail cell no later than July 24.
The politician pled guilty in 2008 to obstruction of justice and was ordered to serve a minimum of 1.5 years of his 18-month to five year prison sentence.
He was caught lying under oath about sending some dirty messages to one of his staff members.
Kilpatrick then resigned.
Later, the judge discovered he was also lying about his assets and failed to meet the terms of his probation, according to Hip Hop Wired.
Although he’s getting out, he’s got more problems ahead of him. He’ll be on trial again in September of next year for federal tax and fraud charges related to his time as the city’s mayor.
