MONROE, La. (KNOE 8 News) - A man accused in two sexual assaults involving juveniles cases was released from prison on his own recognizance after a technicality.

John. H. Brothers, Jr. Was set to go to trial yesterday, but a technicality in the case allowed for Brothers to be released from prison last week.  

The former youth pastor was being held in the Routt County, Colorado jail on 16 felony charges involving sexual assault with a minor.

In April 2012, Brothers was arrested in West Monroe.

Brothers was initially held on a $500,000 dollar bond but was released after last week's hearing on a recognizance bond.  

He was ordered to turn over his passport, forbidden to have contact with minors, and live with his parents in West Monroe.  

Brothers' trial in Colorado is set to begin in May.  He is also facing similar charges in Kentucky.
