The family of Hal Turner is pleased to announce that Hal is to be released on $500,000 bail. We expect to post bail by Monday, October 19, 2009, and to have Hal released by October 23, 2009.
In preparation for his expected release, Federal Marshals transported Hal from the US Prison in Chicago, IL to the Federal tier in a NJ Prison near Hal's home town of North Bergen, NJ.
Once released, Hal will be under house arrest and gag order, forbidding him from talking to the media.
Hal was arrested by the FBI on June 24, 2009 after publishing an editorial which was critical of three federal judges. The editorial quoted Thomas Jefferson and described the judges as traitors. The FBI claims the editorial is a threat to murder, Hal says the editorial is his opinion.
Over the course of the last two months, a large ans well respected media outlet in the New York City area has been conducting an investigation into Hal's arrest. We expect major coverage of the results of their investigation to become public very soon.
