An aide says indicted Trenton Mayor Tony Mack plans to attend President Barack Obama’s inauguration despite travel restrictions.

Aide Anthony Roberts tells the Times of Trenton Mack plans to attend Monday’s inauguration.
Mack’s travel is restricted as a condition of his $150,000 bail on federal corruption charges. It’s not known if federal authorities approved the trip.
Neither his lawyer nor an official at Pretrial Services have returned calls to say whether he has permission to travel.
U.S. Attorney’s spokesman Matthew Reilly says prosecutors are concerned only that Mack shows up for court.
Mack has pleaded not guilty to six counts related to what prosecutors say was a scheme to accept $119,000 in bribes in exchange for using his influence over the development of what turned out to be a fake parking garage on city-owned land.
