Kwame Accused of Inappropriate Contact with Wife During Prison Visit

Former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick's wife might not be able to visit him in state prison anymore.

Corrections spokesman Russ Marlan says a guard saw Kilpatrick touch Carlita Kilpatrick's breast July 4 on a video monitor at Oaks Correctional Facility in Manistee.

Marlan says all prisoners know about the prison's policy allowing embraces at the start and end, but contact is limited to holding hands during visits.

Kilpatrick's spokesman, Mike Paul, called the accusation "ridiculous."

Kilpatrick is being held in federal custody on separate fraud and tax charges. He could lose visiting privileges with his wife when, and if, he is returned to state custody. He was sentenced to up to five years in prison in May on a probation violation.

    He just doesn't get it, does he? This kind of behaviour, bucking the system even to this day, proves the man is incapable of comprehending his actions! His sense of entitlement, greed and ignorance makes me sick!

    He is according to himself above all law. He does what he wants when he wants, and you are suppose to allow it. Being convicted doesn't matter. He is special andd gets special care. He needs to be on a sewer cleaning detail for awhile, maybe then it would sink in that he is no better than any other criminal. Besides I thought I read awhile back that the couple were legally seperated, so why is she visiting him anyway.

    He needs to rott in hell and have no rights to anything. Just cut him off and put him away where he belongs. He is no better than anyone else and he need to learn that now.

    I would like to know if she was exposed,showing any part of her body. The visiting rules are strict but, they have to be. They can't play favorites with special ones. I can imagine it is hard to be without your loved one. But when laws are broken we all have to pay for it. There are other ways to show love without touching private parts. Think about it.
