DETROIT (WKZO) -- Kwame Kilpatrick wants a new federal trial on corruption charges.  The disgraced former Detroit mayor is set to be sentenced on September 3rd, and has filed for a new trial claiming he had poor legal representation when convicted earlier this year.

Kilpatrick asked for a new lawyer before the trial started, with the request denied.  He faces decades in prison for racketeering, bribery, extortion and fraud.
