Former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick is a free man, but his legal wranglings are far from over. Kilpatrick emerged from jail Tuesday after spending 99 days behind bars for his role in a text-message scandal that cost him his job, law license and a $1 million fine. The scandal, meanwhile, has more legal twists and turns. Kilpatrick has hired high-profile attorney Willie Gary to investigate the release of his text messages, which got him into trouble in the first place.
