YAKIMA, Wash. -- Charles Wilson, the man accused of threatening Senator Patty Murray, walked into court with shackles on his ankles Friday morning, but left jail in the afternoon with a GPS monitoring device.

It's part of the conditions of his release, along with a $20,000 unsecured bond. The judge released Wilson because he's a lifelong resident of Yakima County and not considered a flight risk, he'll have a curfew of six p.m. to eight a.m. at his home in Selah.

At the time of Wilson's arrest he turned over several guns, a pistol and two rifles. He's not allowed to have weapons, alcohol or any contact with a politician or political groups.

Wilson's next court appearance will be in Seattle on April 21st.
