Bendictine monk from Wis. to stand trial in IL for abducting 4 girls

WAUKEGAN, IL (WTAQ) - A Benedictine monk from Wisconsin is free on bond, as he awaits a possible trial in Illinois on charges that he abducted four girls.

Fifty-seven-year-old Thomas Chmura was freed after a judge reduced his bond from $150,000 to $50,000. 

Chmura had been held in the Lake County Jail in Waukegan, Illinois since May second, after one of his alleged victims was able to give police a description of the suspect.

Chmura has pleaded innocent and has a trial set for July 12th.

He lived at Saint Benedict’s Abbey in the Kenosha County hamlet of Benet Lake. But a judge says Chmura cannot return to the abbey because children live there – and he cannot have contact with anyone under 17 as a condition of his bond.

Chmura is living with his father in the Chicago suburb of Lansing.
