Kwame Kilpatrick moves to low-security federal prison in New Jersey

FORT DIX, N.J. - Former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick has moved prisons once again, this time landing in central New Jersey.

Kilpatrick had moved from Oklahoma, where he has been for the past four years, to Philadelphia on Tuesday, but that just appeared to be a stop on his way to New Jersey.

Now, he'll be housed at FCI Fort Dix, a low-security federal prison in Fort Dix, N.J.

With 4,302 inmates, FCI Fort Dix is described as "a low security federal correctional institution with an adjacent minimum security satellite camp."

In 2013, a federal jury convicted Kilpatrick, now 47, of racketeering, bribery, and other corruption charges.

The ex-mayor is currently serving a 28-year prison sentence. His release date on the Federal Bureau of Prisons database is set for Aug. 1, 2037.
