Ex-Detroit mayor to spend weekend in prison

— Former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick will spend the weekend in prison as a penalty for 14 parole violations, a state corrections spokesman said Friday.

When given the opportunity to waive the formal parole violation process and instead serve three days at a Detroit lockup as punishment, Kilpatrick agreed, said Michigan Department of Corrections spokesman Russ Marlan.

Kilpatrick is to report to the Detroit Reentry Center on Friday afternoon and will be released from custody early Monday.

He is on parole for a 2008 state conviction for obstruction of justice and still owes Detroit $855,000 in restitution. He’s required to report gifts and other income as a condition of his parole, something officials say he has failed to do on a number of occasions.

“Additional charges and/or sanctions could be possible should new information on potential parole violation behavior come to light,” Marlan said in a statement.

A message seeking comment was left with Kilpatrick’s attorney, Todd Flood, on Friday.
