Conrad Black freed on $2 million bond

Chicago judge says Black must remain in lower 48

Conrad Black was released on a $2 million bond and ordered to remain in the continental United States by Chicago judge Amy St. Eve Wednesday morning. Black had earlier requested he be allowed to return home to Toronto, but prosecutors objected, pointing out Black has access to a residence in Florida. Black must still appear before St. Eve for the final conditions of his bail will be set, and his lawyer indicated that may happen as early as Friday.
