Man who took Clinton campaigners hostage found


The man who took hostages at Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign office in Rochester in 2007 is back in custody.

Leeland Eisenberg was found in his Dover apartment at about 11:05 a.m. today, a day after he cut off his electronic monitoring bracelet, Prosecutor Thomas Velardi said. He was captured without incident by his probation officer and returned to prison. A violation of probation warrant will be filed.

The 48-year-old Eisenberg will be due back in court to learn what penalties he would face.

Eisenberg cut off his bracelet yesterday, just one day after being given a "last chance" at freedom by a judge who released him despite multiple probation violations.

Eisenberg spent about two years in jail for the November 2007 hostage situation at Clinton's Rochester campaign office. He was released on probation last November.

His first violation occurred soon after his release, when he failed to charge his monitoring bracelet.
