DETROIT (AP) - A judge has ruled that former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick has violated terms of his probation by failing to report some of his assets.
Wayne County Circuit Court Judge David Groner ruled Tuesday that Kilpatrick could remain free on bond pending his sentencing. He strongly suggested Kilpatrick may be headed to jail and ordered state corrections officials to prepare a pre-sentence report and submit it to the court.
Prosecutors say Kilpatrick hasn't paid enough toward his $1 million restitution to Detroit.
But the judge says Kilpatrick isn't guilty because of his failure to pay, but because he didn't disclose his assets and
forfeit tax returns as part of the original agreement and subsequent order.
