RANGERS GM SATHER POSTS US$1 MILLION BAIL FOR POCKLINGTON
RIVERSIDE, Calif. - Glen Sather, the president and general manager of the New York Rangers, posted US$1 million bail for Peter Pocklington in a California courtroom Friday.
Thom Mrozek, a public affairs officer for the U.S. Attorney's Office, said Pocklington would be released from custody sometime Friday evening.
"He's getting out on bond," said Mrozek. "This guy posted it for him, named Glen Sather."
Mrozek said there are conditions attached.
"He'll be subject to home detention, which is sometimes called house arrest, and he'll be subject to electronic monitoring. They put some sort of device on you, some bracelet or something to make sure you don't leave, essentially."
Mrozek said he wasn't sure if Pocklington was ordered to surrender his passport but thought it was very likely.
The former owner of the Edmonton Oilers is scheduled for trial May 5 on two charges of bankruptcy fraud.
Sather was the head coach of the Oilers while Pocklington owned the team.
