Detroit City Councilwoman and admitted felon Monica Conyers went on television Tuesday to talk about council endorsements, hopes of staying out of jail and her plans to write a tell-all book.
And toward the end of her hour-long live TV show, Conyers apologized.
“To all of the residents of the city of Detroit, if I disappointed you, I apologize,” she said.
Just before the 3:30 p.m. airing, Conyers raced to the Highland Park studios of WHPR-TV (Channel 33), and stepped out of the city-owned Ford Crown Victoria in a dress with a strand of pearls and a light-colored blazer.
It was her first time addressing the public since pleading guilty Friday to a bribery charge. She started the show by telling viewers she wouldn’t talk about the case.
“I don’t want to get my judge mad at me, and I don’t want to go to jail,” she explained.
