An order filed July 11 U.S. District Court Judge David J. Hale granted a motion filed by attorney's for Greenwell to free him from home detention and electronic monitoring.

Hale did leave in place a travel restriction that does not allow Greenwell to travel outside the court's jurisdiction in the Western District of Kentucky.

Greenwell has a status hearing scheduled for August 21.
