MIAMI, Feb. 13 (UPI) -- Prized University of Miami football recruit Willie Williams got a judge's permission to leave jail Friday, the Miami Herald reported.
Williams was allowed to finish high school while his legal issues move through the court system.
Williams, who received wide public support, will have to wear an electronic monitor while he awaits resolution of criminal charges in Gainesville and probation violation accusations in Broward County.
Broward Circuit Judge Michael Kaplan also ordered him to stay on house arrest, with permission only to attend school and court procedures.
The 19-year-old has committed to playing for UM next season and is among the nation's top high school prospects.
His lengthy court record and allegations of misconduct during a recruiting visit to the University of Florida have threatened to dampen his promising athletic future.
