Detroit (AP) Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick will be back in court this morning. This time it's for a preliminary hearing to determine if he'll stand trial on assault charges.
Kilpatrick is involved in two different criminal cases. Yesterday they clashed when the judge in a perjury case told him he could take a tracking device off his ankle, only to be told hours later by another to put it back on.
The judge in the assault case is the one who gave that order, and he's also barring Kilpatrick from leaving the Detroit Metro area. That decision dashes the Mayor's hope of attending the Democratic National Convention later this month.
Kilpatrick is accused of assaulting two investigators who were at his sister's house trying to serve a subpoena last month in the perjury case.
