In my opinion Judge Edmunds has served the Eastern District of Michigan well as a member of the U.S. District Court. I had a matter before this judge several years ago and she was patient, kind and very fair with me. With respect to the Kwame Kilpatrick matter, however, it is my opinion that the sentence imposed (28 years) is extremely excessive. Nobody was killed. So far as I know, nobody was subjected to being beaten. I understand that the City of Detroit went through a very difficult time when Mr. Kilpatrick was flaunting his nose at everybody. However, there is hope for Mr. Kilpatrick to make amends to his community and rehabilitate himself. Nowhere have I read or heard of rehabilitation potential being considered by Judge Edmunds when she crafted the sentence. A 15-year sentence at 85% would have been more than sufficient to deter recidivism. For this reason, although I have great respect for Judge Edmunds, I scored her as I did.
