A federal judge in Chicago finds pitchman Kevin Trudeau in contempt, but declines to throw him in jail.

The Federal Trade Commission wanted Trudeau behind bars, until he pays back more than $37 million.

The agency says he cheated customers who purchased his weight loss book.

Trudeau says he doesn't have the money.

On Friday, the judge ordered a receiver to track down any assets that can be recovered.
