Kilpatrick Violated Bail Terms Again, Michigan AG Says
August 11, 2008 - 11:17 AMDetroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick was accused of violating the terms of his bail in an assault case a day after he was released from jail for a bail violation in another case.
Attorney General Mike Cox's office filed a court motion Monday saying Kilpatrick violated a provision prohibiting him from having contact with his sister because she is listed as a witness in the assault case.
Kilpatrick attorney James Thomas says the magistrate clarified that order to allow the mayor to see his sister.
The assault charge filed Friday accuses Kilpatrick of shoving a detective. His lawyers deny the claim.
Kilpatrick spent Thursday night in jail after being accused of violating bail in a perjury case involving him and a former aide.
