DAYTON, Ohio (AP) - An Ohio college student awaiting trial on a charge he tried to rush the stage at a Donald Trump rally is not being permitted to go to Cleveland for the Republican National Convention.

Judge Sharon Ovington’s decision Thursday came a day after she found that 22-year-old Thomas DiMassimo violated conditions she set in March allowing him to be free under his own recognizance. It wasn’t clear what conditions he violated, but on Wednesday, she ordered him to be electronically monitored and placed on home detention.

She declined to revoke his bond, however.

He had filed his request earlier Wednesday for her approval to go to Cleveland.

DiMassimo has pleaded not guilty to a misdemeanor charge of illegally entering a restricted area. Trial is scheduled Aug. 29 in Dayton.
