Richie Farmer wants permission to leave state for father

Kentucky - Days before he is expected to plead guilty to government corruption charges, Richie Farmer has asked permission to leave the state.

Court documents say Farmer says his father is in a Kentucky hospital but could be moved to Vanderbilt Hospital in Nashville.

If he moves, Farmer wants permission to take his mom to and from the hospital.

A judge will allow that on a schedule pre-approved by the U.S Probation Office, but he has to make all court appearances.

His re-arraignment hearing will be Friday.
