, the man accused of attempting to steal Atomic Games' unreleased title Breach
during PAX East, was placed on pre-trial probation in Boston Municipal Court yesterday. Suffolk County District Attorney Press Secretary Jake Wark informed Joystiq that the conditions of the probation are that May "stay in school, not reoffend, stay off of Xbox Live web sites, and forfeit his computer, which was seized at the time of his arrest." If May follows the conditions, his case will be dismissed after 18 months. If not, he'll be "put back on track for trial."
May was arrested last March when he attempted to steal Breach from the PAX East show floor
. He then skipped bail
and eventually agreed to show up for court in May
, with the latest hearing set for yesterday. We've contacted Atomic Games for comment on the outcome.
