Loskarn let out of jail pending grand jury case

WASHINGTON, Dec. 16 (UPI) -- The former chief of staff to a Tennessee senator has been released from jail while awaiting grand jury action on child pornography possession allegations.

Ryan Loskarn, 35, who was until last week the chief of staff serving for U.S. Sen. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., was released on his own recognizance Monday and will be placed on "high intensity supervision," Politico reported.

He will live with his parents in Maryland, must wear a GPS monitoring device on his ankle that tracks his movements at all times and is prohibited from accessing the Internet. His parents, Chuck and Laura Loskarn, agreed to take in their son and prevent him form gaining Internet access in their home.

Prosecutors last week raided Loskarn's Washington, D.C., home, removing a laptop computer and other potential evidence. In court filings since then, federal prosecutors said Loskarn had for several years ordered child pornography over the Internet from a Toronto-based company that promises both streaming online videos and DVDs sent by mail. Prosecutors said Loskarn made "several purchases" from November 2010 to March 2011. Court documents state "the majority of these films features young nude boys."

Alexander fired Loskarn the same day the allegations were made public.
