Kilpatrick: GUILTY

Today Wayne County Circuit Judge David Groner found former Detroit mayor Kwame Kilpatrick guilty of several probation violations (including hiding some $650,000 that would pay a small portion of what he owes back to the city of Detroit). "You would be well advised to have your affairs in order before sentencing," the judge advised, and I'm guessing this wasn't a reference to former chief of staff Christine Beatty.

Sentencing is currently scheduled for May 20, 2010 when we all learn the punishment for gettin' your groove on Detroit's dime.
