(WWJ, File)

A judge says Detroit political consultant Sam Riddle can leave jail to visit his ailing mother at a Flint hospital. Riddle’s lawyer says Essie Riddle is in critical condition on a ventilator at Hurley Medical Center and may not survive.

Federal Judge Marianne Battani said Friday that Riddle can see his mother but must pay the expense of transportation and security. He pleaded guilty in May to public corruption and is in the St. Clair County jail awaiting his sentence on Aug. 17.

The U.S. attorney’s office does not object to Riddle’s emergency visit.
