A Madison Twp. man facing 101 felony counts involving child pornography appeared Monday in Butler County Common Pleas Court, where his case was continued until next month.
Trevor Fraley, 24, of Dickey Road, was indicted in November on multiple counts each of pandering sexually oriented matter involving a child and illegal use of a minor in nudity-oriented material or performance.
Fraley has pleaded not guilty to all charges. Judge Michael Oster Jr. continued the case until March 9, and Fraley’s attorney, Chris Pagan, indicated he is continuing to review evidence turned over by the prosecution.
Fraley is free on $500,000 bond and is fitted with a GPS monitor.
As part of bond, Oster also ordered Fraley to have no contact with any children, including his own, to have no internet access and to report twice per week to pretrial services.
Prosecutors requested a high bond, noting he faces more than 300 years in prison if found guilty.
A computer believed to belong to Fraley contained “a very large amount of child pornography — over 1,200 videos depicting children engaged in sexual activity, much of which has been duplicated by defendant’s backing up the videos from his phone to his computer. The most recent unidentified backup occurred on Oct. 29,” Assistant Butler County Prosecutor Kelly Heile wrote in the motion requesting high bond for Fraley.
The motion also says some of the images allegedly traced to Fraley’s digital payment service include sex acts involving toddler-aged children. One of the images may have been taken at a previous residence shared by a witness and Fraley, according to Heile.
