Former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, who is awaiting a verdict in the City Hall corruption trial, faces grim odds of an acquittal, according to local court statistics.
The feds posted a 98.3 percent conviction rate in criminal cases last year, though the overwhelming majority of cases end in plea deals, according to a breakdown of all cases in the Eastern District of Michigan.
The U.S Attorney’s Office prosecuted 892 people last year in the Eastern District of Michigan. Fifteen people were acquitted.
Seven of those acquittals came in one trial: the sedition case against the Hutaree militia. Two militia members were defended by Kwame Kilpatrick’s lawyer, James C. Thomas, and co-defendant Bobby Ferguson’s lawyer, Michael Rataj.
