Detroit — Kwame Kilpatrick must wear an ankle tether, live under home confinement and is barred from traveling to Texas during the City Hall corruption trial, state officials decided Thursday after he failed to disclose a $2,000 gift from a Chicago pastor.

The state is continuing to investigate and could send Kilpatrick to prison for two years if officials conclude he violated parole or received additional cash gifts. State and Wayne County officials are concerned Kilpatrick is hiding assets that could be applied toward the $855,000 in restitution the former Detroit mayor owes the city.

The state Department of Corrections imposed the punishment two days after Kilpatrick was shown on Walmart surveillance tape collecting a $2,000 wire transfer from a Chicago pastor.

Kilpatrick failed to disclose the gift, an apparent violation of parole conditions.
