DETROIT (AP) – The state Corrections Department says imprisoned ex-Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick is eligible for a 90-day boot camp program that could automatically release him on parole after completion.

Spokesman Russ Marlan said Wednesday the department sent a letter stating Kilpatrick’s eligibility to Wayne County Circuit Judge David Groner. The judge sentenced Kilpatrick May 25 and would decide whether he gets the camp.

Kilpatrick was sentenced to up to five years in prison for violating probation stemming from his conviction for lying under oath about an affair with his chief of staff. He’d been expected to serve at least 14 months
