ENTERPRISE, Ala. (AP) - A Saudi man going through military flight training in Alabama was ordered to surrender his passport after he was charged with a sex crime.
A judge set bond for 22-year-old Talal Mohammed Alkharraz at $15,000 on the condition that he give up his passport to Enterprise police.
The judge also said Alkharraz could be released on $1,000 bond if he gave up his passport and wore a GPS monitor.
Alkharraz was arrested on Dec. 29 on sodomy charges. Authorities say in court records that he had sex with another man who is mentally or physically incapacitated.
Officials at the Army's Fort Rucker said Alkharraz was a flight student at the helicopter training base at the time of his December arrest.
