A judge has granted a work travel request for a Madison Twp. man charged with 101 felony counts involving child pornography, and he will be monitored while traveling.

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. The hearing to consider a motion to suppress evidence obtained from multiple search warrants has been continued multiple times due to coronavirus concerns. It is now set for July 30.

Fraley is free on $500,000 bond and is fitted with a GPS monitor. As part of bond, Butler County Common Pleas Judge Michael Oster Jr. 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.

Fraley is requesting a change in that bond to allow him to work so he can pay his attorney. Attorney Chris Pagan filed a motion to modify bond to permit Fraley to travel in more surrounding counties.

Fraley’s family owns a Butler County trucking company, and he can work for that company, but it would require traveling through Preble, Montgomery, Greene, Miami and Clark counties to get to a customer in Springfield, according to Pagan.

Assistant Butler County Prosecutor Kelly Heile filed a response saying the prosecution does not object to Fraley traveling for work in the additional counties with limitations.

But the prosecution requested Fraley be required to provide a work order and travel itinerary that includes location and stops along the way prior to the trip so his movements and purpose can be monitored and verified.

Oster granted the bond change and the prosecution’s request on monitoring.
