Wall Street Rapper Charged in Crypto Heist Cleared to Seek Job

·1 min read

(Bloomberg) -- The aspiring Wall Street rapper accused of conspiring with her husband to launder $4.5 billion worth of Bitcoin stolen from the Bitfinex currency exchange won court approval to seek a new job while her case proceeds.

A judge on Friday granted Heather Morgan’s request to modify the conditions of her pre-trial release so that she “may engage in legitimate employment and receive income of greater than $10,000 per month.” Prosecutors didn’t object to the request in federal court in Washington.

Morgan and her husband Ilya Lichtenstein were charged in February following the government’s largest financial seizure ever. The next month, the pair asked for a delay to the case to facilitate plea discussions.

The US previously said the couple had “highly troubling” overseas ties and fraudulent identities as well as access to hundreds of millions of dollars in cryptocurrency. The value of Bitcoin has fallen more than 50% since the two were arrested at their apartment in Manhattan.
