If there are no prohibitions in your "Conditional Release" or any other document which might be provided to you by courts, you can travel. However, if you are charged with a criminal offence, your charges could be seen by the US authorities at the border on their computer and you could not be allowed into the country.

For the fact that you are charged means that the police will have a record about you in the national data base.
You should do a background check with the police before attempting to enter USA.
if your criminal background check is clear, you do not have to worry, otherwise, you should wait until your charges are over before travelling.
