Former Detroit mayor must report to state court after federal corruption trial Wednesday
Wayne County Circuit Court judge to get update on Kwame Kilpatrick's restitution
Former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick has a full day of court appearances on his planner.
Kilpatrick's corruption trial in federal court is resumed Wednesday after a one-day break.
In court the jury saw more text messages from Bobby Ferguson and Kilpatrick showing how city insiders were scheming to find ways to let Ferguson in on deals in the city.
In one text Ferguson wrote "I meet with them. I cool you know I don't cry for sh** that don't help both of us. I don't push the percentage issue. I turn budgets numbers for site work. What we need to talk about is f*** Soave."
Kilpatrick replied, "Yeah I'll holla later about that."
The text is a reference to businessman Tony Soave who the feds say was forced to give Ferguson $40 million for contract awards in the city.
The defense augured test message can easily be misinterpreted.
Next up the government may be presenting new evidence not in the original charge.
They involve the Heilmann Recreation Center which was given an $8 million face life during the Kilpatrick years.
The contractor on that job, Bobby Ferguson.

In the afternoon, he's due in front of Judge David Groner at Wayne County Circuit Court.
Groner is the judge who sent Kilpatrick to prison for violating probation in a case that forced him out of office. Groner may get an update on restitution. Kilpatrick still owes the city of Detroit more than $800,000 for obstructing justice in a civil lawsuit.

Kilpatrick was hit with a $1 million restitution payment for lying under oath in a police whistleblower case. A Local 4 Defender investigation uncovered how the former mayor was living large in Texas, driving a Cadillac Escalade and staying in a mansion bigger than the Manoogian Mansion.

The findings led to court hearings to find out where Kilpatrick was getting his money.
Kilpatrick issued an apology to Detroit residents about the late payment with a tweet:
"Detroit, I deeply regret my role in yet another distraction from the far more critical issues of crime, finances morale and progress."
In federal court, Kilpatrick, his father and pal Bobby Ferguson are accused of widespread corruption.
