CHAMPAIGN COUNTY -- A Champaign man who had tuberculosis won't have to stay behind bars anymore. A judge ordered Christian Ibanda to stay home and get treatment last month. He was arrested after police say he disobeyed the court order and was put in the Piatt County Jail.

The Champaign County State's Attorney says he's had three consecutive negative tests while in custody, which means he's no longer contagious. Ibanda still has a court appearance set for next week.

PIATT COUNTY -- A Champaign man with tuberculosis is in police custody after a court ordered him to stay home and get treatment. Champaign County authorities took Christian Ibanda into custody Thursday.

Earlier this month, he was scheduled to appear in a special session of court at CU Public Health, but he didn't show up. Now, he's in the Piatt County Jail.

Sheriff Dan Walsh says they have a negative air flow room there, so it's not mixed in with air elsewhere in the jail. Champaign County will pay bout $50/day to keep him there.
