Wasserman Schultz Aide Released Under ‘High-Intensity Supervision’

Imran Awan, who was an aide to Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., has been released after being arrested Tuesday on charges of bank fraud. He is not allowed to leave the U.S. while charges against him are pending, according to Politico.

Awan was released under a “high-intensity supervision program,” Politico reports, and in the program, he must wear a GPS monitor and keep to a curfew of 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. He must surrender his passports and he cannot exit a 50-mile radius from his home in Lorton, Va. He must reappear in court on Aug. 21.

The charges against Awan include attempting to defraud the Congressional Federal Credit Union by getting a $165,000 home equity loan for a rental property—  which is against the credit union’s policies because the property was not the primary residence of the owner, the website reports.

That money was included in a wire transfer
