SAN ANTONIO (AP) - Four men from a polygamist sect indicted on charges of sexual assault of a child have posted bond.

The members of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints have been jailed in Eldorado since turning themselves into authorities more than a week ago.

Schleicher County Sheriff David Doran said they posted bonds of $100,000 per charge late Wednesday.

In addition to the abuse charge, one man faces a charge of bigamy.

The men were indicted along with imprisoned FLDS leader Warren Jeffs in late July.

Under the conditions of their bond, they must stay in Schleicher County unless they notify authorities.
