Federal appeals judges have ordered Morgantown restaurant operator George Tanios to be released on bond while awaiting trial on charges from the Jan. 6 riots at the U.S. Capitol.
In a short filing Monday, judges with the U.S. District Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit concluded Tanios does not represent a danger to the community.
"The record reflects that Tanios has no past felony convictions, no ties to any extremist organizations, and no post-January 6 criminal behavior that would otherwise show him to pose a danger to the community within the meaning of the Bail Reform Act," the appeals judges wrote.
