CHICAGO, Ill. - After six days in jail, infomercial king Kevin Trudeau is switching out his orange jumpsuit for one of his trademark expensive suits once again.
On Monday, Judge Robert Gettleman ordered the TV pitchman to be released from federal custody, but not before making Trudeau go under oath to deny he knows about any other undisclosed bank accounts or assets.
On the record, Trudeau insisted there are no other sources of hidden money to be discovered. Judge Gettleman warned he could face perjury charges if that turned out to be untrue.
The previous week, Judge Gettleman had ordered Trudeau jailed for contempt after a court-appointed receiver and attorneys with the Federal Trade Commission argued he was not being forthcoming about his web of offshore accounts.
Trudeau has not paid the $37 million fine imposed years ago for misleading consumers about his best-selling weight-loss book.
Last year, a 41 Action News undercover investigation examined a secret global club promoted by Trudeau.
FTC attorneys argued Trudeau was using the club as a way to shield millions of dollars in revenue from their collection efforts.
Earlier this month, 41 Action News reported new details about the profits generated by the club and the amount of cash forked over for upgrades and commission by members.
Trudeau also faces criminal contempt charges stemming from allegedly fraudulent infomercials. A jury trial is scheduled next week at the federal courthouse in Chicago.
Gettleman said he was reluctant to keep Trudeau locked up so close to trial because it could hinder the preparation between him and his attorneys.
