Judge Orders Kilpatrick Book Publisher To Court

DETROIT (AP) – A judge wants the company that published ex-Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick’s memoirs to appear in court and explain why none of the book’s profits have been entered in an escrow account.

Wayne County Circuit Judge David Groner on Friday ordered Creative Publishing Consultants, Inc., to appear Nov. 16 and show why the company should not be held in contempt of court.

Groner issued an order in June establishing the account for profits from “Surrendered! The Rise, Fall and Revelation of Kwame Kilpatrick.” The money would be used toward unpaid restitution Kilpatrick owes Detroit as part his 2008 plea to criminal charges.

Prosecutors say a partial accounting Oct. 14 from Creative Publishing shows about $56,400 in total sales, and that a company run by Kilpatrick’s sister, Ayanna, was due about $19,200.
