Daniel Frisiello, the Massachusetts man who is accused of sending white powder to Donald Trump Jr. has been released from jail on bail while he waits for trial by a liberal judge.
Frisiello apparently has Autism and is sensitive to the loud noises in prison. Boo hoo.
The Salem News reports:
Beverly man released while awaiting trial for hoax letters
Frisiello, 24, will be confined to his family’s home, monitored by a GPS bracelet, and barred from using the internet or mail while awaiting trial.
The decision followed a hearing where a postal inspector described numerous earlier letters, most of them containing some type of threat and one that had also contained white powder that had been sent by Frisiello.
The letters included ones sent to other, unidentified members of the Trump family warning them of consequences if now President Donald Trump did not drop out of the presidential race in 2016, as well as an earlier letter to Trump Jr., the president’s son…
U.S. District Court Chief Magistrate David Hennessy acknowledged that Frisiello, 24, had committed dangerous acts by sending the letters — which he admitted he sent in hopes of triggering fear and a hazmat response — but concluded that because of Frisiello’s autism, and the support of a large family, he could safely be released under the supervision of his parents.
“There is a village there,” Hennessy said, referring to the 40 to 50 people packing the Worcester courtroom…
The judge also said he shared the concern of defense lawyer William Fick, who said that Frisiello is suffering in a prison environment because of his sensitivity to loud noises.
If this guy had done this to a member of Obama’s family, not only would he still be in jail, he would be the top story in the mainstream media.
