A child-molesting priest, facing new charges, was released from a Wisconsin jail Wednesday after he cleared up a probation violation and was sent back to Illinois where he is free on bond.

Father Donald McGuire, 77, who is facing dismissal from the Jesuits in Chicago, will be under house arrest in an Oak Lawn apartment -- where he has to wear an electronic monitor and not have any contact with children under 18.

Also, two friends have pledged to a federal judge they will watch McGuire to ensure he abides by his bond conditions while awaiting trial.

McGuire was given a bond this week despite the feds arguing he is a danger to children.
