No boot camp for Kilpatrick

DETROIT, June 14 (UPI) -- A judge ruled Monday former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick will not be sent to a prison boot camp.

Wayne County Circuit Judge David Groner told state corrections officials he wouldn't allow Kilpatrick to be assigned to the military-style program, the Detroit Free Press reported. Successful completion of the 90-day program would mean automatic parole.

Prosecutors had opposed sending the 40-year-old former mayor to boot camp. Kilpatrick is not due to be released until July 24, 2011, at the earliest after being sentenced recently to 1 1/2-5 years behind bars for a parole violation of his 2008 obstruction of justice conviction.

He's being held in a single cell at Oaks Correctional Facility in Manistee, Mich., segregated from the general prison population because of his notoriety, corrections officials say.
