DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — A Chinese woman charged as part of what federal prosecutors say was a conspiracy to steal trade secrets from U.S. seed corn companies is free on bond.

A federal judge says the case against Mo Yun is weak and there are no reasons to hold her until the Dec. 1 trial as prosecutors had requested.

Judge Robert Pratt said in an order filed Monday that Mo must post $250,000 bond, wear a GPS monitor and remain under home confinement between 10 p.m. and 7 a.m. Mo can't travel to China to see her children, but may be allowed to go to California to see them under supervision.

She was arrested July 1 in Los Angeles.

Prosecutors say she helped others employed by her husband's company take seed from Midwest cornfields.
