Barry Landau can return home despite theft charges
BALTIMORE (AP) - A federal judge in Maryland is allowing a presidential historian charged with conspiring to steal valuable documents to return to his New York City apartment with GPS monitoring and no Internet access.
A judge on Friday denied an appeal of the release of Barry Landau over prosecutors' arguments that the historian poses a flight risk and could destroy more documents the government has not yet found.
Landau and his assistant, 24-year-old Jason Savedoff, are charged with stealing valuable historical documents from the Maryland Historical Society and conspiring to steal documents from other archives. The men were arrested in the historical society's library in Baltimore last month.
Landau pleaded not guilty Thursday. Savedoff was released on bail last week and has yet to enter a plea.
