Lawyers for a former UMass Dartmouth student accused of lying to federal investigators will seek his release from custody today.

Update 11:58am - Federal prosecutors are going to allow a teenager connected to the Boston Marathon bombing to get out of jail. Robel Phillipos was arrested last week.

He’s accused of lying to investigators looking into the bombing allegedly carried out by Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. The “Boston Globe” says prosecutors will allow Phillipos to be released on bail as long as he wears an ankle monitor and stays in home confinement.

In court papers filed over the weekend, attorneys for Robel Phillipos said their client was scared and upset when talking to investigators seeking information about the Boston Marathon bombings.

Phillipos will asked to be released on bond when he appears in federal district court today. Investigators say Phillipos lied about going to the dorm room of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev with two others with the intent of removing a backpack and fireworks that are considered evidence in the bombing investigation.
