DETROIT (WKZO) -- Former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick is settling in to his new accommodations at a medium-security prison in Oklahoma after officials denied his request to serve out his sentence in Texas near his family.

Kilpatrick is at the El Reno Federal Prison near Oklahoma City. He is slated to stay there until an August 2037 release date following his conviction on 24 counts last year.
