50-year-old TV pitchman Kevin Trudeau was ordered back to jail Wednesday.

Trudeau will report back Tuesday after a fundraiser in Washington to raise money for his legal defense fund.

The judge plans to keep him in jail until he identifies and turns over all his assets to satisfy a nearly $38 million fine for misleading consumers with advertising for a weight loss book.

Trudeau spent one night in jail last month but the judge released him on the condition he give an accounting of his assets.

Trudeau did not comply.

He has previously claimed he doesn’t have any money.
