Corruption trials make for odd bedfellows.
Ex-con political consultant Sam Riddle was spotted on the first floor of the federal courthouse this morning to attend a probation orientation, while ex-Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick stands trial eight floors above.
Riddle, who toiled alongside equally convicted Detroit City Council President Monica Conyers, was released into a halfway house in September to finish a 37-month prison sentence.
A court spy said the 66-year-old Riddle “looked great.”
Club Fed does a body good.
Riddle, who is scheduled to be released Jan. 29, had been serving time at the Butner Federal Correctional Complex in North Carolina since Feb. 23, 2011.
He was sentenced to 37 months in prison after pleading guilty in May 2010 to conspiracy to commit bribery and extortion.
Riddle was accused of bribing a Southfield councilman, evading taxes and extorting businesses when he worked as a Conyers top aide.
