Looking for a fresh start, the former top aide and mistress of ex-Detroit mayor Kwame Kilpatrick is reportedly moving to Atlanta, according to various media outlets.
Christine Beatty and Kilpatrick both lied under oath about their extra-marital affair, which included thousands of explicit text messages.
Beatty is still on probation following her perjury conviction and she will be reporting to Georgia authorities, Judge Timothy Kenny told USA Today. Kenny is the presiding judge of the criminal division of the Wayne County Circuit Court.
Beatty served 70 days in prison and owes the city of Detroit $100,000 in restitution. She served as Kilpatrick's chief of staff from 2002 to 2008.
Beatty, 39, reportedly has a new consulting job in Atlanta, where she will live with her two daughters, according to Detroit newspapers.
