Money granted for another lawyer for Detroit's ex-mayor

DETROIT (WKZO) -- Money is being granted for former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick to have a second lawyer to help appeal his 28-year prison sentence.

On Tuesday, a federal appeals court granted up to 24-thousand dollars for another lawyer for Kilpatrick. The former mayor says a second lawyer is needed to review more than 12-thousand pages of trial transcripts and provide legal research for the appeal of his racketeering conviction in March of last year.

Taxpayers will foot the bill for Kilpatrick's new lawyer.
