Judge rules Detroit mayor didn't violate bond

DETROIT (AP) - A judge has ruled that Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick didn't violate bond conditions in an assault case by visiting his sister, who is one of the witnesses listed by authorities.

Judge Ronald Giles presided Tuesday morning when a prosecutor argued that Kilpatrick violated his bond conditions by spending time with his sister last weekend.

Giles had sent the mayor to jail last week in a separate perjury case. Giles agreed with the mayor's attorneys that the no-contact order didn't include Ayanna Kilpatrick.

The mayor and his wife, Carlita, were in court for the hearing. Giles put the mayor in jail Thursday after learning he traveled to Windsor, Ontario, in July without notifying authorities, a condition of his bond in the perjury case.

Kilpatrick was released Friday. (Copyright 2008 by The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.)
