Forty-two-year-old Chinese national Mo Yun, who federal prosecutors believe is part of a group planning to steal trade secrets from United States seed corn companies, was released from prison after posting a $250,000 bond, the Associated Press reported on July 22.
To deter her from fleeing the country, Judge Robert Pratt ordered that she be monitored by a GPS bracelet. She is not allowed to leave Iowa and must remain in a designated house between 10 p.m. and 7 a.m. everyday. Although the defense believes the evidence against Mo is thin, the intellectual property she is accused of stealing is worth more than $500 million.
