DETROIT – Ousted Detroit police monitor Sheryl Robinson Wood has hired a former prosecutor as questions swirl around her relationship with ex-mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, her oversight of lagging police reforms and six-figure monthly fees.
Wood, who was removed a week ago when the FBI uncovered text messages indicating undisclosed meetings and communications with Kilpatrick, chose Vincent Cohen Jr., who said Wood looks forward to quickly clearing her name.
Authorities are weighing investigations of Wood’s tenure and the slow pace of reforms.
