OKLAHOMA CITY - An Oklahoma City attorney indicted for traveling to Peru to have sex with children is out of jail tonight.

Michael Billings is under house arrest tonight and has to wear an ankle monitor.

A federal judge also told him he had to give up his passport.

59-year-old Mike Billings is home in Choctaw hours after he posted a $10,000 bond.

A federal grand jury indicted the Oklahoma City attorney on three conspiracy counts.

Prosecutors say Billings and others conspired to commit sex trafficking by recruiting children in Peru and traveled from Oklahoma City to Peru to have sex with children under 18 years old.

Last year, investigators in Peru found Billings and Ada bondsman Robert Pierce staying at a hotel there.

Inside Pierce's room, they found two girls ages 13 and 17, condoms, candy, and extra small women's underwear.

At the detention hearing Monday, the judge told Billings to avoid all contact with Pierce, victims, and witnesses in the case.

He can't be within 100 feet of schools or places with children 18 years and under.

He can have contact with his own children but not their friends.

He's also not allowed to date anyone with children under 18.

The judge is allowing Billings to continue working.

He practices law at 42nd and Classen, where he was arrested Friday.

He's also allowed to check in on the two strip clubs he owns in Oklahoma City.

Monday, prosecutors said Billings traveled to Peru 39 times from 2003 to 2013.

He and his attorney avoided the media Monday but in the past told NewsChannel 4, "Robert Pierce and I were in Peru for vacation.  We did not commit any illegal or immoral acts while there. The Peruvian authorities thoroughly investigated our conduct and determined we did not commit any of these acts."
