(KCEN) -- Buddy Skeen has been released from jail on bond.
His lawyer brought up an old case where it was decided that the terms of community service, including jail time, could not begin until the appeals process is through.
Since Skeen filed an appeal, he will be out on bond until the appeals court hands down a ruling.
Skeen's bond was filed at $50,000, which is the same as the bond he had already paid in the past, so Skeen did not have to pay any additional fees.
There are terms and conditions to his release from jail though.
He will have a curfew from 9 p.m. to 7 a.m. during which time he must be at home. Skeen must also report to his probation officer every second and fourth Monday of the month. The last condition of his release on bond is that he cannot leave McLennan County.
Skeen could be out on bond for at least six months.
This was only one of the charges filed against Skeen. There are still five more pending charges that have not been dealt with yet. Court proceedings for those charges are set to begin at the end of October.
A pretrial hearing for the remaining charges has been set for September 28.
