NEW YORK, Oct. 27 (UPI) -- A New York judge has allowed a mobster under house arrest to leave his home for Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's Day.

Manhattan Federal Judge Alvin Hellerstein approved the requests made by lawyers for accused Luchese crime family associate Alvaro Alvarez.

The ruling gave Alvarez 4 1/2 hours to trick-or-treat with his 3-year-old daughter in Elmsford, N.Y., the New York Daily News reported.

He also can see the Christmas Spectacular at Rockefeller Center, celebrate Christmas and New Year's Day with family, and in January, attend his daughter's fourth birthday party at a fancy country club.

Alvarez was charged along with 30 others in a racketeering conspiracy, and was placed under house arrest after posting $1 million bond secured against his own home and $250,000 of his parents' savings.
