Thomas also can’t possess any device with Internet access, including a computer, cell phone or gaming console. He also can’t possess any form of pornographic material.

In addition to the other conditions of his release, a $50,000 secured bond was required by the court, according to Dilorio-Sterling.

“If he doesn’t appear when he’s supposed to appear (in court), or he flees, the government can seize $50,000 from his property,” she said.

The government argued against Thomas’ release because he should be considered a danger to society, according to Dilorio-Sterling.

The U.S. District Court disagreed, however, and ordered his release on Thursday, Nov. 15, according to court documents.

Philip Cormier, Thomas’ attorney, couldn’t be reached for comment.
