Instead of going to jail, he is required to wear electronic monitoring equipment and he will stay in Alabama.
He is scheduled to report back to court with the three other suspects on Wednesday for a preliminary hearing.

PREVIOUS STORY: South Pittsburg football player, Dylan McQueen, has been released from jail.
McQueen was arrested after failing to appear at a court hearing last week.
A judge approved his release into his mother's custody Thursday afternoon. He must stay in Jackson County, Ala. under house arrest with a GPS monitor.
McQueen and three other teenagers are being charged as adults after reportedly holding a woman at gunpoint, while they burglarized her home back in June. McQueen bonded out after his arrest, but ended up back in jail after a warrant was issued out for him.
After his arrest, McQueen was ordered to attend alternative school, and was home schooled, but his mother said neither proved to be productive. Because of that, the family moved to South Pittsburg in September, so McQueen could go to school and continue playing football.
"Apparently, Jackson County has a different ruling. Bond or not you have to get permission from the courts, which we did not find that out until later after we moved," Donna McQueen said. "He did have a former probation officer, checked with her. She's new in her position, and at that point told me it was okay, that I might want to check with the District Attorney's Office, which I know I can't just go to the District Attorney's Office for my information, so I consulted with my then council Bruce Gardner who is in Huntsville. We had the conversation twice, and he said it was okay for us to move."
Last Friday, she filed a motion in Jackson County to move her son to South Pittsburg.
"It was filed Friday morning at about 8:30 a.m. by 2:00p.m. she had called a hearing."
A hearing on the motion was Friday, but her son was in school, and did not appear.
The judge in Jackson County then issued a warrant for McQueen, and his mother turned him in to the sheriff's office Monday.
But she said initially she was not aware of the warrant being officially issued, since the judge agreed not to sign it in a previous hearing.
"All the paperwork that was filed was supposed to be sealed you know no one was supposed to know about that, but I do feel that the district attorney did tell a few people at a football game and so the word got out that the warrant had been issued," Donna McQueen said.
McQueen's South Pittsburg teammates, friends, and Olivet Baptist Church pastor Kevin Adams attended Thursday's hearing to show support. Many of them were upset.
"I think it's just ridiculous. It upsets us. Obviously we're here today to help him, but we're more upset with than anything with how he's been treated these past few days," said Mitch Butner, of the South Pittsburg football team.
Emotions shared by Adams, who is helping the family seek legal help, including support from civil rights activist Jesse Jackson, and the NAACP.
"He hasn't had visitation with his mother. He's been given legal documents to sign at 17 years old with no representation," Adams said. "This is his future...it's not just about his athletic ability. We're talking about a young man with a 3.7 GPA; 22 on the ACT. He can be anything he wants to be, so why put him in a jail cell when there are so many different alternatives to help him?"
McQueen is scheduled to appear in court again on Monday afternoon with a court-appointed attorney.
A preliminary hearing with McQueen and the other three teenagers is set for November 2nd.
A pretrial will be help November 8th.
