DUBUQUE - The former head of the Agriprocessors kosher meatpacking plant in Postville is out of jail.

Sholom Rubashkin posted bail a day after a judge set it at $500,000 dollars.

Rubashkin was held without bail since November after prosecutors argued he was a flight risk.

But his attorneys appealed, saying precautions could be taken to ensure he does not flee before his September trial.

Ruabshkin faces many federal charges after hundreds of illegal immigrants were found to be working at the Postville plant back in May.
