Mijangos made his first court appearance in downtown Los Angeles Tuesday morning where he was released on a $10,000 unsecured appearance bond on condition of home detention with no computers, his attorney Sylvia Torres-Guillen said.
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement put a detainer on Mijangos and will take him into custody because he is an illegal alien, U.S. attorney's spokesman Thom Mrozek said.
A telephone listing for Mijangos could not be immediately located.
The scheme was sophisticated, Mrozek said.
Mijangos told FBI agents he was a consultant and studied Java and C++, two computer programming languages.
"He did have technical proficiency," Mrozek said.
