Judge orders Cambridge man released on bail

Robel Phillipos, 19, charged with lying to Boston Marathon bombing investigators

With the mother of the 19-year-old Cambridge man looking on, a federal magistrate judge today ordered Robel Phillipos released on bail while awaiting trial on a charge that he lied to federal agents investigating the Boston Marathon terror bomb attacks.

Phillipos was arrested by federal authorities last week, along with two men from Kazakhstan, as investigators continued to probe the movements of suspected bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. Phillipos and the two Kazakh men were friends with Tsarnaev at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth.
