Hunter Hanson, 22, the North Dakota grain trader who investigators say bilked millions of dollars from farmers and elevators, will be allowed to leave jail while he awaits a plea hearing on federal wire fraud and money laundering charges, reports AgWeek.

In a bond hearing on Thursday, June 20, Magistrate Judge Clare Hochhalter ordered Hanson released under strict conditions at the farm where his father, Keith Hanson, lives near Sheyenne in northeast North Dakota.

Hanson has officially pleaded not guilty but has agreed to plead guilty July 30 before District Judge Daniel Hovland. Until then, he'll be monitored by electronic GPS and by probation officers.
