Former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick  was found guilty and faces up to 20 years in prison. He was convicted Monday on 24  federal charges in his public corruption case. A case included racketeering, extortion and filing false tax returns.

Kilpatrick is accused of running a criminal enterprise through the mayor’s office to enrich himself through bid-rigging and extortion, and using nonprofit funds for personal gain.

The jury reached a unanimous decision after 14 days of deliberation. Both Kilpatrick and Bobby Ferguson were found guilty. The verdict was reached on Friday but the jury decided to go home and sleep on it over the weekend to see if anyone would change his or her mind by Monday morning. No one changed their minds.

The prosecution wants Kwame Kilpatrick and Ferguson in custody immediately because they believe they are flight risks.
