TV pitchman Kevin Trudeau is due in court Tuesday morning, and he may be in jail by the end of the day.

Trudeau failed to pay $38 million in fines for making false advertising claims in a weight-loss book. The judge gave Trudeau until Tuesday to report back to court, so that he could attend a fundraiser in Washington for his legal defense fund.

Trudeau said he doesn’t have any money, despite allegations that he lives a lavish life style. The judge says he must stay in jail until he identifies all of his assets in order to pay the fines.

Trudeau will have to either surrender or prove that he can not pay the fine.
