Video: A convicted Kwame Kilpatrick offers no comment as he leaves court

DETROIT (WJBK) -

Former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick didn't have much to say as he walked out of federal court Monday, just minutes after he was convicted of corruption charges, ensuring a return to prison for a man once among the nation's youngest big-city leaders.

"Not at this, I don't have any comment," Kilpatrick told reporters as he stared blankly past cameras and waited for a vehicle to pick him up. "Excuse me, excuse me," said Kilpatrick as he got into a black pickup truck and drove away.

Jurors convicted Kilpatrick of a raft of crimes, including a racketeering conspiracy charge. He was portrayed during a five-month trial as an unscrupulous politician who took bribes, rigged contracts and lived far beyond his means while in office until fall 2008.
