Detroit Mayoral Spokesman in Trouble
(2007-12-03)
(wgvu) - Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick's press secretary
has pleaded guilty to domestic violence and obstructing police.
The charges stem from Matt Allen's November 2nd arrest after
police responded to a 911 call at his Detroit home.
The Wayne County prosecutor's office says Allen entered the plea
Monday in 36th District Court. Allen has been sentenced to a year
of probation, counseling, a psychiatric evaluation and substance
abuse treatment.
Defense attorney Richard Steinberg would not comment on the
case.
The mayor's office also had no comment.
Police say Allen's wife, Tania, told them her 42-year-old
husband shoved her into a wall.
