Heidi Montag's father is a free man after spending nearly a week behind bars. As Radar reported, the reality star's biological dad was arrested last Thursday in Colorado on shocking charges of sexual assault on a child and incest. But William Montag was released from jail on Wednesday, February 4, RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively.

Montag, whose new mug shot shows him wearing an orange jumpsuit and looking noticeably thinner, was transported from an Aspen jail and taken into custody in Arapahoe County, where the alleged crime took place and sealed court documents were filed.

According to Arapahoe County Sheriff Captain Larry Etheridge, Montag appeared in court Wednesday, when he was given a bond of $50,000 that he posted the same evening.

As previously reported by Radar, William received no visitors while he was in jail, and his wife Terri Montag left their hometown in a hurry, even asking neighbors to look after the family's dogs.

The conditions of his bond are unknown at this time, but according to Etheridge, typically any defendant wouldn't be allowed to leave the state. As such, he issued Montag a warning.

"If he doesn't show up for his next court appearance, a warrant will be issued for his arrest," said Etheridge.

The 67-year-old, who famously walked his Hills star daughter down the aisle during her televised wedding to Spencer Pratt, allegedly committed the crime between July 1, 1996 and June 30, 1998, on a victim who was between 14 and 17 at the time. Authorities insist that the victim is not Heidi, or her sister Holly Montag.

According to reports, the arrest affidavit cites more than 50 separate incidents, which included performing oral sex, back rubs, and the use of a vibrator.

If convicted, Montag faces up to 12 years and $750,000 in fines.
