Ex-Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick Seriously Injures Knee Getting into U.S. Marshals Van

DETROIT — A new motion filed on behalf of convicted felon Kwame Kilpatrick indicates that he thinks he has plenty appealable issues and is innocent of the 24 criminal counts he was convicted of in March.

It also talks about how he damaged his knee while getting into a U.S. Marshals van.

The motion filed Monday in U.S. District Court by attorney James Thomas, asks the judge for the third time to let Kilpatrick go free pending sentencing. His request the previous two times was rejected, and he’s likely to have a hard time convincing U.S. District Judge Nancy G. Edminds to change her mind this time around.

Thomas writes that Kilpatrick has been preliminarily diagnosed with a torn Anterior Ligament (ACL).

In the motion he states:

This injury occurred just after the verdict in this case on March 11, 2013. While Defendant Kilpatrick was exiting the federal building, chained and bound (hands and feet), he slipped on the rain soaked steel step of the Federal Marshal Van, being provided for transport to the Federal Detention Center at Milan, Michigan. After receiving no care for more than a week at the Detention facility,and experiencing tremendous swelling of the knee, the Court convened a meeting of the federal marshals and Detention Center Staff.
