Judge: Kwame Kilpatrick Violated Probation


He's had been making monthly payments of $3,000 ... But prosecutors learned Kilpatrick and his wife have had other money, including $240,000 in loans, live in a rented mansion and drive fancy SUVs.

Kilpatrick's sentencing is set for next month, but the judge could order him to jail before then.

If all this sounds familiar, that's because in 2008, Kilpatrick was sent to jail for violating terms of bond by taking an unapproved trip to Canada.

In another development, the Detroit Free Press has a good piece today looking at the Kilpatrick Civic Fund, which previously drew criticism for funding trips for Kilpatrick's family. Now, the Free Press reports that $222,154 vanished from the group's tax filings between 2007 and 2008 without explanation.
