The Kwame Kilpatrick corruption trial continues to unveil surprises, but this time the former mayor of Detroit is accused of accepting money since being on trial and not reporting it, according to 7 Action News, Jan. 10, 2013.
Kwame Kilpatrick had $2,000 wired to him from a pastor in Chicago on December 11, 2012, to a local establishment and failed to report it to his probation officer, now he’s on a tether.
Kwame’s probation officer requested he report the money, but he refused to cooperate. Of the $2,000, $500 went to pay for Kilpatrick’s restitution.
Surveillance cameras show Kilpatrick at a local establishment receiving the cash money from the teller. Kwame is shown on camera receiving the money from the teller.
Kilpatrick is on tether and confined to his mother’s home until the Michigan Department of Corrections determines if, he did, indeed, violate his parole.
Kilpatrick thanked supporters on Twitter from KwameKilpatrick @KwameAndFamily: Can't count all the blessings, words of encouragement & well wishes I've received 2night. Thank U...Love yall back! DjangoChained4now
