WORCESTER, Mass. – A Massachusetts man charged with sending a threatening letter with white powder to President Donald Trump’s son has been ordered released from prison pending trial.
A judge ordered Daniel Frisiello be released Monday.
Frisiello will be limited to the house of the family and it is forbidden to use the internet and send e-mail. He is behind the bars since he was arrested this month.
The letter to Donald Trump, Jr. opened in February by his wife, Vanessa Trump, who reported she was coughing and felt sick and was briefly hospitalized. The substance turned out to be harmless.
Postal Inspector Michael Connelly says Frisiello also sent a threatening letter with white powder to a Trump family member 2016 during the presidential race.
Frisiello’s lawyer has said that he has some “issues” and is on medication his entire life.
