Hasson’s attorney, assistant federal public defender Liz Oyer, has said Hasson’s mother-in-law and father-in-law in Virginia are willing to have him stay with them under their supervision. So are Hasson’s parents and brother in Arizona, according to Oyer. Hasson’s wife has moved out of a Maryland apartment and is living in Virginia with her mother.

Windom said none of those custodian options are viable or meet what Day said was the goal of ensuring that someone has “eyes and ears” on Hasson “like nobody’s business.”

“The only way to ensure that goal is met is to keep the defendant detained in the custody of the United States Marshals Service,” the prosecutor wrote.

Oyer said conditions of Hasson’s release should include home detention with electronic location monitoring, as well as no access to firearms, a computer or other internet-capable devices.
