A short comment about Kwame

Here's a quote (from The Detroit Free Press) from Kwame's lawyer about his inability to pay:

“You can’t jail him for failing to pay restitution unless you find it is willful,” said Daniel Hajji, one of Kilpatrick’s law­yers. “But he’s making a good faith effort to pay what he owes.”

BUT, if he's paying for other things (multiple cars, plastic surgery, etc.) isn't he WILLFULLY not using that money to pay his restitution? I didn't go to Law School but this seems pretty obvious to me.

Any lawyers or law students care to enlighten me?

Update: Apparently the Judge agrees with me! I feel so smart!
