Ex-Detroit mayor fails to make restitution payment

SF Gate
The prosecutor who forced Kwame Kilpatrick out of the Detroit mayor's office said he violated his probation by missing a Friday deadline to make a $79,011 payment toward his $1 million restitution to the city.

Kilpatrick could face jail or prison as a consequence. His lawyers had warned he couldn't afford the payment: Money orders worth only $14,048 were dropped off at the Wayne County Circuit Court bond office on his behalf.

"We expect that a violation-of-probation warrant will issue," Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy said in a statement. "When that comes we will be prepared to attend any hearings." Her office said the warrant could come in the "near future."
