Ex-Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, who’s serving a sentence in the Wayne County Jail, may be in for more trouble –not that he hasn’t had his fair share already.

DETROIT — A federal grand jury has subpoenaed a large volume of records from the Kilpatrick Civic Fund as part of an ongoing criminal investigation, two persons familiar with the investigation said Sunday.
Other non-profits associated with former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, including the Next Vision Foundation and the Detroit Justice Fund set up to help pay Kilpatrick’s legal fees in connection with his recent criminal case, also are under scrutiny, said one of the sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity.
Lawyers for Kilpatrick and his former chief of staff, Christine Beatty, received letters late last week from the U.S. Attorney’s Office asking for copies of records related to how they were paid for legal services connected with recent criminal proceedings against Kilpatrick and Beatty, the source said. The letter was not a subpoena, meaning the lawyers were not required to provide the requested information, the source said.
