DETROIT (AP) The father of former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick has been sentenced to 15 months in federal prison for a tax crime.
 
The sentence ordered Thursday was at the bottom of the guidelines. Prosecutors had initially sought a longer punishment, but that was before Judge Nancy Edmunds calculated the guidelines.
 
Bernard Kilpatrick wanted probation or minimal time behind bars. He was convicted of not reporting all income for 2005.
 
A jury cleared him or couldn't reach a verdict on more serious charges during a corruption trial with Kwame Kilpatrick and Detroit contractor Bobby Ferguson.
 
Nonetheless, the judge says the 72-year-old was involved in acts of extortion during his son's time as mayor.
 
Bernard Kilpatrick says he "messed up" his taxes, "no question about it."
