Former Detroit Mayor released from jail

Posted: Updated:

DETROIT (AP) - Former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick has been released after spending the weekend in prison for violating parole in a 2008 conviction that booted him from office.

Kilpatrick left a Michigan Corrections Department facility in Detroit Monday morning. He had been locked up there since Friday afternoon.

He's expected to return Monday to federal court where he's on trial in a separate matter.

The Michigan Corrections Department says Kilpatrick violated parole by not disclosing all financial transactions last fall. He still owes Detroit $855,000 in restitution and must report details about his income and expenses.

Kilpatrick was convicted of obstruction of justice in 2008 in a scandal involving text messages and an affair with a top aide. He's been on trial on corruption charges since September.
