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.
