Since the AJC’s buried this one down in the Metro section on their homepage today, let’s look at CBS46’s story instead:
GREENVILLE, S.C. — A daughter of Atlanta’s mayor was sentenced Monday to three years of probation for laundering money for her ex-husband’s drug operation.
The Greenville News reported that Kai Franklin also will have to serve three months of home confinement.
Franklin pleaded guilty in December. Prosecutors said she bought $14,000 in money orders to pay the mortgage on an Atlanta home she owned with her then-husband, Tremayne Graham and structured the transaction in a way designed to hide it from the Internal Revenue Service.
“I’d just like to apologize to my mother, my family and friends,” said Franklin, who was accompanied in federal court by her mother, Atlanta mayor Shirley Franklin. “I really want to move on with my life.”
