A federal agent says the father of former Detroit Mayor¬†Kwame¬†Kilpatrick¬†deposited $605,000 in cash in the bank over a seven-year period.
Rowena Schuch of the Internal Revenue Service says she doesn't know the source of Bernard¬†Kilpatrick's cash. He's charged with tax crimes as well as taking payoffs from people who had business with the city of Detroit.
The¬†Kilpatricks¬†and a third man, Bobby Ferguson, are accused of a sweeping scheme to enrich themselves through extortion, bribery and other tactics while¬†Kwame¬†Kilpatrick¬†was mayor.
During cross-examination Wednesday, defense attorney John Shea said Bernard¬†Kilpatrick¬†"gambled all the time" and suggested that gambling may have been a source of the cash deposits.
