By Zachary Fagenson MIAMI (Reuters) - A Miami federal judge released a Miami-Dade Police Department internal affairs detective on $500,000 bond after he was charged with helping drug smugglers and orchestrating a murder-for-hire plot. As part of an agreement with federal prosecutors Ralph Mata, 45, will wear an electronic tracking bracelet while released, the judge ordered during a bond hearing on Monday. Mata agreed to waive extradition and will be transferred to New Jersey, where the bulk of the investigation took place. Mata, a 22-year law-enforcement veteran who allegedly called himself "The Milk Man," was arrested last week in Miami in connection with arranging for two assassins dressed in police uniforms and badges to kill two members of a rival group, according to a criminal complaint.

Judge Jerry Brewer ordered Robert Corchado, 28, not to drive and ruled he must remain in Orange County where the accident occurred or in Seminole County, where Corchado lives with his mother and brothers and faces drug-related charges in a separate case. Corchado testified he has $5,000 in savings and no close relatives outside of central Florida where his wife and three children also live.

By Lacey Johnson FORT MEADE, Maryland (Reuters) - Defense lawyers for five men accused of conspiring in the September 11, 2001, attacks asked a judge to halt a pretrial hearing in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, on Monday over concerns that FBI agents are investigating them. Earlier this month, two FBI agents approached a defense team member and asked him "to sign an agreement," said Jim Harrington, an attorney for Ramzi Bin al Shibh, a Yemeni man accused of wiring money to the 9/11 hijackers. Harrington said the member of his defense team would need to be replaced and called the episode "a chilling experience for all of us." Defense attorneys filed an emergency motion on Sunday night to stop the pretrial hearings scheduled for this week until an investigation is conducted on the nature of the FBI encounter.
