Kwame Kilpatrick again has fallen behind on restitution payments owed to Detroit.
The former mayor agreed after his release from prison in August to pay $150 a month toward more than $860,000 still owed the city as part of his 2008 plea-bargain to avoid trial on felony charges stemming from the text message scandal.
The parolee, who was granted special permission to live with his wife and three sons in Texas and travel the nation to promote a book he co-authored behind bars, missed his first due date -- Sept. 6 -- by 23 days.
Someone made a $160 payment Sept. 29 at the Wayne County Circuit Court cashier's counter in Detroit's Frank Murphy Hall of Justice.
His October payment is one week overdue, according to court records.
Although Kilpatrick has repeatedly vowed in speeches and in his book that he will fulfill his obligation, at $150 per month it will take almost 478 years.
