WORCESTER (AP) — A Massachusetts man charged with sending a threatening letter with white powder to President Donald Trump’s son has been ordered released from jail while awaiting trial.

A judge ordered Daniel Frisiello to be released Monday.

Frisiello will be confined to his family’s home and is prohibited from using the internet and sending mail. He has been behind bars since he was arrested this month.

The letter to Donald Trump Jr. was opened in February by his wife, Vanessa Trump, who reported she was coughing and felt nauseous and was briefly hospitalized. The substance turned out to be nonhazardous.

Postal Inspector Michael Connelly says Frisiello also sent a threatening letter containing white powder to a Trump family member during the 2016 presidential race.

Frisiello’s attorney has said he has some “issues” and has been on medication his entire life.
