Jonathan Tran has been ordered to wear a GPS monitor and remain within 100 miles of his San Jose area. He has been released on his own recognizance by a federal district judge after allegedly jumping the White House fence. He must remain in the country and only travel to Washington for court appearances. He is not allowed near the White House in accordance with his release. The judge also required him to undergo a mental health evaluation and cannot possess any weapons. He is being fitted with the GPS Tracking Device through the San Jose pre-trial services department who will monitor his activities. He is scheduled for a preliminary hearing April 13 in Washington.
