SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (WJBK) -

Krystal Crittendon was Detroit's top attorney before being demoted by Mayor Dave Bing.  She fought hard against the consent agreement between the city and the state.  She lost the battle and her job, but now she's in the fight to become the next mayor.

Joining Huel Perkins and Charlie Langton on our panel:

Krystal Crittendon, a graduate of Cass Tech, Wayne State and the Detroit College of Law.  Her friends call her a woman of integrity and courage, but her critics say she's a rouge attorney who stood in the way of progress.

And Steve Hood, a TV show host, consultant and Sunday school teacher who was in the same class at Cass Tech as Crittendon.
