"Since then, there was some litigation. We are currently in the motions phase. ... No trial date has yet been scheduled and she remains in custody."

Dorschner said federal officials did not oppose the release of a redacted version of the documents.

"At the time of her arrest, there was an active criminal investigation ... [so] the records remained sealed," Dorschner said. "The investigation is ... at a point where the redacted documents won't compromise it."

Shannon Conley's father, John Conley, told ABC News, "At this time we have no comment."

Her public defender, Robert Pepin, did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment.
