The images allegedly involved children younger than 12. Ripley was released against prosecutors petitioning the judge he remain in jail. Ripley got out, but must wear a GPS tracker and can only leave his home to attend religious services and his court dates.

Ripley may not go online, can’t visit places where children are present and must strictly adhere to other specific conditions of release you can read about here.
