From an NPR News in Brief article:
Detroit Mayor Pleads Guilty To Obstruction; Will Resign
"Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick pleaded guilty Thursday to obstruction of justice charges, agreeing to resign from office in the nation's 11th largest city as part of a plea deal with prosecutors.
Kilpatrick, 38, will serve four months in jail in a case that stems from the firing of a deputy police chief. He and former top aide Christine Beatty were charged in March with perjury, misconduct and obstruction of justice. They're accused of lying under oath about an affair and their roles in the firing.
Kilpatrick must also pay $1 million in restitution and serve five years of probation.Beatty did not plead guilty and will appear in court on Sept. 11."
