Daughter in $7M shoplifting case freed

CHICAGO — A judge in Chicago says a daughter accused of participating in a $7 million shoplifting spree with her parents can go free pending trial.

Tuesday's detention hearing for 34-year-old Julia Bogdanov came a day after U.S. Magistrate Judge Michael Mason deemed her Yugoslavia-born parents flight risks and ordered that they stay behind bars.

The three were arrested at their luxury home in suburban Chicago last week. They haven't entered pleas on charges they worked in tandem for years to pilfer merchandise nationwide.

Mason let Julia Bogdanov return to her family home under the supervision of her sister, Kristina Bogdanov. No bail had to be paid.

The sister assured the judge an antique musket had been removed from the house. That was one condition for allowing Julia Bogdanov to stay there.
