Couple accused of spying for Cuba seek release
WASHINGTON — Attorneys for a couple accused of spying for Cuba for three decades are asking a judge to let them out of jail.
Lawyers for Walter Kendall Myers and wife, Gwendolyn, want the judge to order them confined at home. They are to make that argument in federal court Wednesday before U.S. District Judge Reggie Walton.
The lawyers say the couple would pay for electronic monitoring and Gwendolyn Myers’ son would ensure that someone is with them 24 hours a day. They also would stay away from the Cuba Interests Section in Washington, as well as their sailboat, and turn over their maps of Cuban waters.
Prosecutors have said the couple planned to sail away to Cuba.
They have been in custody since their arrest June 4.
