MONTREAL – A Montreal deacon charged with producing and distributing child pornography was granted bail on Thursday.

William Kokesch was ordered to deposit $10,000 and to return to court on Feb. 27.

He is not allowed to be in public areas where children are likely to gather. He is also forbidden from using a computer or having access to the Internet.

The bail conditions were announced as Montreal police said they have received more tips from the public since his photo was released.

Kokesch, 65, was charged Saturday via video link after police searched his west-end home a day earlier.
