Bernie Ward gets a bit of freedom
The federal court has loosened the leash it has on former KGO-AM host Bernie Ward, who out on bond as he awaits trial on child porn charges. Ward is still confined to his home with electronic surveillance. But ABC7 reporter Dan Noyes says on his blog that a judge has granted Ward's request to attend church on Sundays as well as travel to Lake Natomas this month to watch his college-age daughter compete in the national rowing championships, and he’ll be allowed to attend his son’s high school graduation. Noyes notes that his next report on Ward, scheduled for 6 and 11 on Wednesday, concerns Ward's years as a priest.
