Legal Opinions Are Split

Wayne County Prosecutor Kym L. Worthy announced last week that she will decide within the next 30 days whether or not she will formally charge Mayor Kwame M. Kilpatrick with a crime in connection with his lies under oath during the Whistle blower trial.

I said before that I trust Ms. Worthy's legal opinion. Regardless, I conducted an informal survey of the more than one dozen attorneys that I know. I asked each of them whether or not they thought Ms. Worthy will charge the Mayor with a felony based on what they knew of the situation.

For the record, they were evenly split as to whether or not Mr. Kilpatrick will face charges. We'll just have to wait a couple more weeks to find out.
