Grounded

James O’Keefe, the 25-year-old mastermind behind the bungled attempt to tamper with the phones of Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-LA), is out on bond, but has been ordered to live with his parents while he awaits trial.

Magistrate Judge Louis Moore made the order Tuesday as part of the conditions of release for O’Keefe, 25. (Read them here.)

The young conservative filmmaker is free on $10,000 bond. A preliminary hearing in the case is set for February 13.

He has also been forced to turn in his Gameboy and X-Box. Presumably he will be spending most of his time in his room where he will be watching re-runs of Psych so he can see how real undercover agents do it.
