DETROIT, Dec. 3 (UPI) -- Former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick has been accused of trying to break a deal he made to avoid a trial by seeking his law license back, his prosecutor says.

Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy has asked for a hearing next week before the judge who sent Kilpatrick to jail and required him to sign a letter that revoked his license. Worthy claimed a change in his license situation would violate the plea agreement.

Judge David Groner ruled at Kilpatrick's Oct. 28 sentencing that his agreement meant his license was revoked.

Kilpatrick was charged with perjury, conspiracy, obstruction of justice and misconduct in office for lying under oath in a police whistle-blower lawsuit last year. His sentence called for 120 days in jail and five years probation.
