RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) - A judge in Brazil has set the house arrest conditions for eight of the 10 people charged with ticket scalping, conspiracy, and ambush marketing during the Rio de Janeiro Olympics.

The conditions are the same already imposed on Ireland’s top Olympic official, Pat Hickey, and countryman Kevin Mallon.

The Rio de Janeiro State Judiciary branch says on its website that Judge Juliana Leal de Melo set the same conditions for the others.

The 10 must appear in court once a month, respect a 10 p.m. curfew, and cannot attend any of the Paralympic events in Rio.

They have turned in their passports.
