WINTER SPRINGS, Fla. (AP) – Five male high school students accused of sexually battering a female student were ordered released from jail after their arraignment was postponed until next month.

Orlando television station WKMG ( ) reports that a judge gave the order to release the five Winter Springs High School students on Monday. No formal charges have been filed yet against the teens as the investigation continues.

A sixth student is being held on $35,000 bond, and he remained in jail.

Winter Springs police Chief Kevin Brunelle said last month that the girl recorded part of the attack on her iPod.

The teens have been in jail since mid-November.
