United States v. Kilpatrick

Former Detroit Mayor convicted of litany of crimes relating to city contracts, including extortion, bribery, fraud; sentenced to 28 years in prison and ordered to pay $4.5 mil in restitution to city. Sixth Circuit (2015): Restitution should reflect the amount the victim lost, not necessarily the profit defendants gained. Recalculate. District court: Fine. Pay $1.5 mil. Sixth Circuit (2018): That’s more like it.
