Federal government considering granting Kwame Kilpatrick early release from prison, Local 4 sources say

Former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick looks likely to receive an early compassionate release from prison because of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, but so far, no definitive decision has been reached by the Department of Justice.
