WAUKEGAN, Ill. -

The trial has been delayed for a Benedictine monk from Wisconsin charged in Illinois with trying to abduct four girls.

The Daily Herald reports Tuesday that attorneys pushed 57-year-old Thomas Chmura's trial to Sept. 25. Chmura is free on $50,000 bond and has pleaded not guilty.

He lived at St. Benedict's Abbey in Benet Lake, Wis. He was arrested based on a description provided by one of the girls.

The judge has restricted Chmura to living with his father in the Chicago suburb of Lansing. Chmura also can't have contact with anyone under age 17.

Prosecutor Victor O'Block says Chmura has been compliant with the court-ordered restrictions.
