FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — The Latest on a mother’s effort to visit her critically ill daughter who has been in a Florida jail (all times local):

12:25 p.m.

A judge has ordered a Florida sheriff’s office to release a critically ill woman from custody so her mother can visit her in the hospital.

The Miami Herald reports that state Circuit Judge Barbara Duffy ordered the Broward Sheriff’s Office Monday to release 26-year-old Kristin Carare from custody. The sheriff’s office had blocked Carare’s mother, Lucy Moss, from visiting her in the hospital where she is on life support. Carare had been jailed for three months awaiting trial on drug possession charges before becoming ill last week.

Moss traveled to Fort Lauderdale from Cleveland after learning of Carare’s illness. She was allowed two visits but then sheriff’s officials said further visits would not be allowed.

Sheriff’s spokeswoman Keyla Concepcion had told the Herald that Carare’s hospital room is an extension of the jail and security regulations must be followed.
