Mendte's house arrest set to end

Larry Mendte's six-month house arrest will end Monday, when the U.S. Probation Office will remove the monitoring equipment that's made him a prisoner of his Chestnut Hill home.

Mendte pleaded guilty in the summer in federal court to cyber-spying on former CBS3 colleague Alycia Lane and passing sensitive info to gossip columns.

Meanwhile, Lane's civil lawsuit, in which she alleges Mendte and the station ruined her career, continues. Mendte, who has not divulged his next career move, still has to serve 2½ years of probation.
