Home confinement for zip tie guy, mother charged in Capitol riot
A federal judge has authorized the release of a Georgia woman and her Tennessee son on charges for their involvement in the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol.
Lisa Eisenhart is accused of breaking into the Capitol with her son, Eric Munchel, who was photographed carrying flexible plastic handcuffs in the Senate chamber.
A judge in Washington, D.C., on Monday authorized the release of Eisenhart and Munchel to third-party custodians.
They will be placed on home confinement along with other conditions.
A federal appeals court ruled Friday that the pair would present no safety risk if subjected to strict release conditions.
