    DETROIT -
    A judge agreed to push back sentencing dates for Kwame Kilpatrick, his father Bernard Kilpatrick and Bobby Ferguson.

    The trio was in court Thursday for a status conference. Kwame Kilpatrick had argued the court is moving too fast to sentence him and is violating his right to due process. He and the other two were set to be sentenced in September but now will be sentenced in October...

    Experts: Don't expect apologetic Kilpatrick at sentencing

    Robert Snell /The Detroit News

    Detroit— Don’t expect a mea culpa or apology from Kwame Kilpatrick when the disgraced former Detroit mayor is sentenced today for a reign of corruption that weakened the city and damaged faith in public officials, legal experts and former associates said.

    Kilpatrick, 43, who did not testify during his five-month corruption trial, will get an unchallenged opportunity at 10 a.m. in federal court to tout his accomplishments and lessen a potentially decades-long prison sentence by showing remorse. He could, however, provoke a stiffer sentence by denying responsibility or criticizing the court, experts said...

    I have an appointment this morning and won't be able to watch the sentencing. Will update later today.

    Ex-Detroit Mayor Kilpatrick gets 28 years in prison

    By Ross Levitt, CNN

    updated 2:29 PM EDT, Thu October 10, 2013

    (CNN) -- Former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick on Thursday was sentenced to 28 years in prison after he was convicted in March of two dozen federal charges.

    The charges include racketeering, extortion and the filing of false tax returns. He was accused of using the mayor's office to enrich himself and associates.

    Before he was sentenced, Kilpatrick apologized in court Thursday morning.

    "I say with every morsel of my being that I'm sorry to you," he said.

    Judge Nancy G. Edmunds noted the apology and said that he was showing "more awareness than I have seen along the way."

    But she said "a long prison sentence is necessary to insulate the public from his behavior." ...
