On Tuesday, a judge agreed to release Pratt, because he's not considered a threat to the public.
Pratt's attorney says Pratt is very sorry for pointing the laser, and it was a "stupid thing a young man did."
If Pratt is found guilty, he could be sentenced to up to five years in federal prison and will have to pay a $250,000 fine.
