DETROIT MAYOR-CRIMINAL CASE
(2008-07-16)
(wgvu) - Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick says his focus is on
moving Detroit forward, not a prosecutor's threat to amend a
perjury charge in his criminal case.
Kilpatrick says he wants riverfront redevelopment efforts and
other projects completed.
He said he's letting his lawyers handle Wayne County
prosecutor's office claims that text messages from the city's
former communications provider point to extramarital relationships.
He and ex-top aide Christine Beatty are charged with perjury and
other charges stemming from testimony they gave during a
whistle-blowers' trial.
They're accused of lying about having an intimate relationship
and their roles in the firing of a police official.
Both deny the charges.
