Carlita Kilpatrick Net Worth
Despite being married to former Detroit mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, Carlita Kilpatrick is not known to be a household name. She has not been in the news much, and her social media presence is limited to posting pictures of her three children. She has also not disclosed details of her family background. Those who know her believe that she is still in a relationship with Kilpatrick, and that the couple remains stable.
The Kilpatricks had three children, all of whom are teenagers. Carlita Kilpatrick was raising her children on her own, while her husband was in prison. Kilpatrick was released on parole in August 2011. Kilpatrick had been in jail for seven years at the time of his release. In that time, he was accused of destroying the careers of three police officers, scheming to get a $2 million tax break, and hiding assets.
The Kilpatricks were living in the Manoogian Mansion, a city-owned residence of Detroit’s mayor. According to neighbors, the family had left a lot of things behind. A local television station, Local 4 Defenders, discovered the Kilpatricks living in the mansion. The Kilpatricks were living there for a month before it was discovered. It is unclear whether they have moved since then.
Kilpatrick was transferred to the federal prison in Milan, Michigan. According to Kilpatrick’s lawyer, he was sentenced to 28 years in prison, and is owed $800,000 in restitution to the city of Detroit. The restitution may take 140 years to pay off. He is also owed more than $1 million in taxes. In addition, he is owed money for diverticulitis, which his doctor believes was caused by a high protein diet.
Kilpatrick is a member of the Mayors Against Illegal Guns Coalition, a bipartisan anti-gun group that was co-chaired by Mayors Michael Bloomberg of New York City and Thomas Menino of Boston. Before his federal conviction, Kilpatrick was not listed as a member of the coalition. However, Kilpatrick’s cousin, Patricia Peoples, was appointed to the city’s deputy director of human resources.
A third-party group, Citizens for Honest Government, also supported Kilpatrick. The group released an advertisement comparing the media’s criticism of Kilpatrick to lynch mobs. It urged the public to pray for Kilpatrick and her family. Some of the Kilpatrick family members were appointed to city departments without any experience. In some cases, the resumes of the appointees were falsified.
Before Kilpatrick was in prison, he was appointed to the Executive Protection Unit (EPU), a unit that was responsible for guarding Detroit’s mayor. He was stationed in a 15-by-10 foot cell, and kept separate from the general population. According to former members of the EPU, Kilpatrick attacked an exotic dancer. However, Bernard Kilpatrick later apologized for his comments. He said that the allegations of a party at the Manoogian Mansion were false.
According to the Detroit Free Press, Kilpatrick’s ex-wife, Renee Hornbuckle, was also sent to prison for a rape. Carlton Poles, a veteran of the D.C. police force, also served as a member of the EPU.
