With a book due to be released next month and more legal troubles on the horizon, Kwame Kilpatrick is set to be released from prison. summed it up on Friday:

The Michigan Parole Board this morning voted to grant Kwame Kilpatrick release from prison, where he has been incarcerated since being found in violation of his probation 13 months ago.

Kilpatrick, 41, was sentenced to prison for at least 18 months and up to five years after being a judge ruled that he had been hiding assets that should have been used to pay is his $1 million restitution to the city of Detroit. The restitution came under a plea deal Kilpatrick reached in 2008 to end the criminal prosecution stemming from the text message scandal.

Corrections spokesman Russ Marlan said he did not know when Kilpatrick would be released but it will not be before July 24, which would fulfill the minimum sentence Wayne County Circuit Court Judge David Groner set.

Charges of racketeering, extortion, bribery, fraud, and tax evasion all are looming for Kilpatrick.  Kilpatrick can’t seem to stay out of trouble or the spotlight.  Now with a book coming out the spotlight isn’t going away, let’s hope that someday the trouble does.
