After being found guilty on 24 counts of corruption against him Monday morning, former Detroit mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, will immediately go to jail.

According to the Detroit News, Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael Bullotta wants Kilpatrick and friend Bobby Ferguson imprisoned while awaiting sentencing in the City Hall corruption trial.

Both men have previous convictions and each faces up to 20 years in prison after today’s convictions.

Bullotta told U.S. District Judge Nancy Edmunds that based on Kilpatrick’s character, the court should detain him immediately. Bullotta made the argument based on Kilpatrick’s history of disobeying court orders, probation officer’s and parole officer’s orders.
