Judge orders Kwame Kilpatrick back to court in connection to restitution

DETROIT (WXYZ) - Judge David Groner has ordered former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick to appear in court on December 12th in connection to his restitution.

Sources tell 7 Action News that the court hearing is in response to a Court of Appeals decision regarding proceeds from the sale of his book "Surrendered: The Rise, Fall and Revelation of Kwame Kilpatrick."

The order came at nearly the same time as the Wayne County Prosecutor's Office announced that  Kilpatrick was late to make his November restitution payment.

Wayne County Assistant Prosecutor Maria Miller tells 7 Action News the former mayor's payment came in December 5, five days past the deadline.

By not making the payment on time, Miller says Kilpatrick is now in violation of his parole.

" Kwame Kilpatrick has missed his November 2012 payment. We (Wayne County Prosecutor's office) hope that Michigan Department of Corrections will look into this because Kilpatrick is violating his terms of his parole and he is under the MDOC's jurisdiction," said Miller in a statement to 7 Action News.
