Rizler out on bail

Joel Ott wrote in to say he spotted a new article about Christopher Smith ("Rizler") in the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.

The paper reports that Smith will be released today on $50,000 bail. He'll also be monitored electronically and needs permission to leave the state.

According to the Star-Trib, Judge Michael J. Davis delayed ruling on whether Smith's little escapade in the Domincan Republic violated the court order. Davis has set a hearing on the contempt of court charges for Aug. 25.

Meanwhile, the paper says, a federal grand jury is considering fraud and money-laundering charges against Smith, and an indictment may come within months.
