SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) - A Saudi princess charged with human trafficking has posted $5 million bail a day after her California arrest.

Prosecutors say 42-year-old Meshael Alayban posted bail Thursday after appearing in court to face the felony charge, and was being released from Orange County jail.

District Attorney Tony Rackauckas (ruh-KOW-kuhs) had asked the judge to set bail at $20 million or deny it entirely, saying it was unlikely any amount would guarantee a Saudi princess would appear in court.

The district attorney's office says Alayban has surrendered her passport, must wear a GPS tracking device and cannot leave Orange County without permission from the court. She's also barred from any contact with the victim.

Alayban did not enter a plea. Her attorney called the case just a dispute over work hours.
