KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- The 24-year-old son of Kansas City, Mo., Mayor Sly James is serving a 30-day jail term in Kansas for a probation violation.
The Kansas City Star reports that Kyle James was booked into the Johnson County, Kan., jail Monday to start serving the month long sentence.
Kyle James is serving probation in a 2009 driving-under-the-influence case. He had initially been granted diversion in the case, but his diversion was revoked in 2011, and he was placed on probation. Johnson County prosecutors filed to revoke the probation after James was charged in May in Kansas City, Kan., with disorderly conduct.
The mayor’s office referred comment to Kyle James’ attorney. But the attorney who represented James on the DUI withdrew from the case and court records show no current lawyer for James.
