A federal judge ordered that Malheur National Wildlife Refuge occupier Pete Santilli be released from pre-trial detention Monday. Despite that order, he won’t be released anytime soon.
At the hearing, U.S. District Judge Anna Brown agreed with a pre-trial services recommendation that Santilli, an Internet radio host from Ohio, be released to a halfway house as long as he receives a mental health evaluation and follows any recommendations.
However, Santilli will remain in custody in Multnomah County because he has been charged elsewhere, too. Santilli is facing felony charges in Nevada related to a 2014 armed standoff between ranchers and the Bureau of Land Management.
To gain release in Oregon, Santilli would first need to win a detention hearing related to the Nevada charges.
“As a practical matter he’s not actually going to be released, he’s going to be sent to Nevada to go thorough this procedure down there,” said Tom Coan, Santilli’s attorney. “It’s a long a complicated process, but one that he’s willing to go through.”

Oh my! you can go. Oh wait thats just what we said. You are not allowed to go. oh and you need to be mentally evaluated!
