DETROIT (WKZO) -- Former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick will not be allowed to fly to his Texas home this weekend to see his family because of his late restitution payment.

Kilpatrick's parole agent told him about the punishment Wednesday, the same day his 500-dollar payment was received by Wayne County officials.  State prison records show the former mayor told his parole agent he was late with the payment because it slipped his mind and he was concerned about earning money for his family.

Kilpatrick is due to appear before Wayne County Circuit Judge David Groner next week to explain why proceeds from his autobiography have not been deposited into an escrow account as ordered by the court.
