DETROIT (WKZO) -- Former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick will find out how many years he will be behind bars later this week.  He's due to be sentenced on Thursday in his latest corruption case.

Federal prosecutors have asked the judge to send Kilpatrick away for at least 28 years, while his lawyers are arguing for no more than 15.  A 28 year term would be one of the harshest penalties ever handed down to a former politician.
