FBI Agent Arrested in Pakistan for Trying to Board Flight with Ammunition, Knife Likely to Be Released on Bail

An FBI agent who was arrested in Pakistan after authorities said he tried to carry ammunition and a knife onto a plane in Karachi may be released from jail today on $10,000 bail, the Washington Post reports this morning.

The agent has been identified as Joel Cox, who works in the Miami Field Office.

News of his possible release comes a day after Pakistani officials said he would be jailed until at least Saturday while awaiting anti-terrorism charges.

The tone in Pakistan has changed.

“The government can challenge the bail but since the offense is not serious enough they might not challenge it,” a police officer said.
Instead of facing anti-terrorism charges, as first reported, Cox faces charges of carrying unauthorized ammunition on a civilian flight.
American officials confirmed that Cox was arrested after security found a knife and 15 9mm bullets in his luggage.

Controversial ex-New York police Commissioner Bernard Kerik is a free man again — at least for now.

A federal judge in White Plains, N.Y., who tossed him in jail Oct. 20 for violating his pre-trial conditions,  released him Tuesday so he could go home to his New Jersey mansion pending his Feb. 18 sentencing.

Kerik pleaded guilty last week to eight felony counts that included tax crimes and lying to the White House during his failed confirmation as head of the Department of Homeland Security.

His plea agreement calls for a sentence of 27 to 33 months, though the judge does not have to abide by that.

“This is not home confinement with morning strolls and afternoon strolls,” U.S. District Judge Stephen Robinson warned Kerik, according to the N.Y. Daily News. Kerik will have to wear an ankle monitoring bracelet.

The judge also raised his bail from $500,000 to $1.4 million, the paper reported. To read more click here.
