Former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick is expected to be released from prison in early August to give authorities time to arrange transfer of his parole to Texas.

The Michigan parole board voted last month to release Kilpatrick from state prison and he was expected to be freed no earlier than July 24.

The Michigan Department of Corrections tells The Detroit News for a Wednesday story that details needed to be worked out.

Kilpatrick is expected to rejoin his wife and three sons in a Dallas suburb.

He's facing federal charges.

Kilpatrick quit office in 2008 when he pleaded guilty to obstruction of justice.

He was sent to prison in May 2010 by a judge who said the ex-mayor failed to turn over certain assets toward his $1 million restitution.
