The man accused of mailing threatening letters to Mayor Daley and other elected officials has been released from jail on home confinement. A federal court judge released 28-year-old Ronald Haddad Tuesday to the custody of his mother. The judge also ordered him to wear an electronic monitoring bracelet.

Haddad is also not allowed to have access to computers or mail.

Haddad was arrested last week following a raid at his suburban River Forest home. He is suspected of sending more than 25 letters, packages and e-mails to public officials. Prosecutors say many of the letters contained death threats.
