(AP) A federal judge says a former contractor at NASA's Langley Research Center can be released from jail while he awaits trial, despite prosecutors' arguments that the Chinese citizen is a serious flight risk.

Bo Jiang pleaded not guilty Thursday to lying to federal authorities about what electronics he was carrying with him to Beijing when he was questioned at Dulles International Airport earlier this month.

Court documents say Jiang was under investigation for possible violations of the Arms Export Control Act at the time of the search, although he does not face any charges related to that.

Jiang will be released on a $10,000 unsecured bond and be forced to surrender his passport, although prosecutors may appeal.

His trial is scheduled for May 29.
