Runaway musician?

Will he run?

I bet he does.

Or at least tries.

But then again, he's probably going to go to Club Fed so he may not try.

House arrest set in child porn case
Guillermo Contreras - Express-News

A music instructor accused of having the largest stash of child pornography ever uncovered in San Antonio was released from jail Thursday and ordered into house arrest.

During a hearing Wednesday, U.S. Magistrate Judge John Primomo granted Dennis Joseph Jasso, 34, release on $50,000 unsecured bond. Jasso has no criminal record, but prosecutors were opposed to his release.

Primomo ordered Jasso to live at his mother's house and wear an electronic ankle monitor, and have no unsupervised contact with children and zero access to the Internet.
Jasso was indicted last week on two counts of distributing child pornography and one count of distributing it. The charges stem from a raid at his house in December, when the FBI seized his computer and found more than 27,000 pictures and 1,000 videos of child porn. He entered a plea of not guilty.

He is alleged to have accessed the child porn since at least May 2007, his final month as assistant band director at Sam Houston High School.

According to testimony, Jasso also was music director of the 5:30 p.m. Mass at Holy Spirit Catholic Church and helped out with music programs at other churches in town. The restrictions may now limit those activities.

Officials said no improprieties have been found involving any of the youth or children he previously encountered.
