St. Louis (KSDK)-- The former employee of the St. Louis Cathedral who was indicted earlier this year for allegedly stealing tens of thousands of dollars from the Archdiocese of St. Louis is free on $100,000.00 bond awaiting his next court appearance in February.

34 year old Maximilian Tenney was also forced to surrender his passport as part of the release on the felony stealing crime and more than a dozen charges of forgery for thefts that took place over a period of months beginning in 2008 through 2010.

Tenney worked for the Diocese as an executive assistant between 2007 and 2010. An audit by the Archdiocese of St. Louis revealed a variety of improprieties in the financial records and disbursements from the cathedral's choir account.

Evidence indicated Tenney made checks payable to his father and subsequently deposited into his father's personal account.

Tenney was later arrested in the State of Louisiana.
