Former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick will spend the weekend in jail after the Michigan Department of Corrections charged him with 14 parole violations late Thursday.

Corrections spokesman Russell Marlan said in an e-mail this morning that Kilpatrick will report to the Detroit Reentry Center in Detroit Friday afternoon, after Kilpatrick appears at his ongoing trial in public corruption charges at U.S. District Court. Marlan said KIlpatrick will be released early Monday, presumably in time to appear for the resumption of his trial.

Marlan said Kilpatrick waived going through the formal parole violations process in favor of serving the immediate penalty.

The violations include failing to report cash gifts he received in October, November and December of 2012.
