Rev. Kwame Kilpatrick preached his first sermon since he was pardoned by former President Donald Trump on his last day in office.
The 51-year-old disgraced politician walked out of prison a free man in January after serving nearly 8 years of his 28-year sentence for bribery, racketeering, extortion and fraud charges. The crimes were committed while he was Detroit mayor.
By law, Kilpatrick cannot hold public office for 20 years after his conviction. However, Kilpatrick needs money fast.
His family and his debtors were happy to see him released from prison.
In a recent interview Kwame announced he is about to be remarried. Kilpatrick’s first wife, Carlita Kilpatrick (pictured), divorced him in 2018 after 23 years of marriage.
After a crash course in bible studies, Kilpatrick made his first public appearance in the pulpit, preaching a sermon at Historic Little Rock Baptist Church in Detroit on Sunday.
