DETROIT, June 5 (UPI) -- A Michigan prosecutor says authorities in Michigan and Texas should explain why they have not sought warrants for former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick.

Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy sought answers in a motion filed Friday regarding Michigan Department of Corrections officials and representatives of the Tarrant County Texas Community Probation Department in Texas, The Detroit News said.

The motion asks that officials from both departments clarify their reason for not filing probation violation warrants against Kilpatrick for alleged violations by the former mayor.

Kilpatrick resigned his post in 2008 after pleading guilty to two felony counts of obstruction of justice and received five years probation as part of his punishment.

Worthy alleges Kilpatrick violated that probation by not signing over his state pension as per his plea deal and by not disclosing details regarding his assets or other sources of income.

The Detroit News said Kilpatrick currently resides in Southlake, Texas, where he is under the supervision of a probation agent.
