INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (February 16, 2016) – A federal judge denied the government’s request to keep former Park Tudor basketball coach Kyle Cox in jail while he waits for his trial.
The motion for revocation of release order came Tuesday. Per the conditions of the order, Cox will be transported to Brandon Hall, a Volunteers of America-Indiana facility located at 511 N. Capitol Ave., where, pending trial, he is to remain on 24-hour-lockdown except for emergencies. This lockdown status is imposed in lieu of electronic monitoring.
Cox will only be allowed to leave for court appearances, attorney visits, or other appointments as pre-approved by the United States Pretrial Services Agency. Cox must be accompanied by someone other than a relative when he leaves the VOA facility.
Cox is not allowed to access the internet or receive phone calls, and he must comply with all other VOA rules while being housed at the facility.
