Tenn. Sen.'s fired chief of staff ordered freed
Politics

WASHINGTON (AP) - The fired chief of staff for Tennessee Sen. Lamar Alexander was ordered to live with his parents in Maryland while he awaits prosecution on charges of possession and attempted distribution of child pornography.

A federal judge allowed Ryan Loskarn to be released from custody Monday after a hearing. Loskarn's lawyers argued that the 35-year-old had no prior convictions or arrests and that he should be freed. Prosecutors opposed the request.

Magistrate Judge John Facciola ordered Loskarn to be electronically monitored and confined to his parents' home. He also isn't allowed access to any device that can connect to the Internet.
