DETROIT (WKZO) -- As testimony continues in a month's-long federal corruption trial in Detroit, a former aide and friend to ex-Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick says he gave Kilpatrick a cash bribe of ten-thousand dollars.

During his third day on the witness stand, Derrick Miller said that he made the drop in the bathroom of a downtown restaurant after getting the cash from developer Andrew Park.  Park has already pleaded guilty to tax evasion.

In the meantime Miller, whose attorney says he's trying to make amends for past misdeeds, has already admitted that he benefited from bribes while he was working for the Kilpatrick administration.
