DETROIT (WKZO) -- A start date has been announced for the Kwame Kilpatrick corruption trial. Opening arguments are scheduled to begin on September 20th, roughly a week later than originally planned.
The delay was caused by the slower than usual jury selection process. U.S. District Judge Nancy Edmunds wants opening arguments to begin next Thursday with the first witness taking the stand on Friday.
Kilpatrick faces charges of racketeering, conspiracy, extortion, bribery, fraud and tax evasion.
