A Madison Twp. man facing 101 felony counts involving child pornography appeared in Butler County Common Pleas Court on Monday, and his case was continued until next month.

Trevor Fraley, 24, of Dickey Road, was indicted Nov. 22 by a Butler County grand jury 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. Appearing in court with his attorney Chris Pagan, he waived his right to a speedy trial. Another pretrial hearing date was set for Feb. 10 after a “voluminous” amount of evidence is reviewed by the defense.

Fraley is free on $500,000 bond and is fitted with a GPS monitor.

Oster also ordered Fraley to have no contact with any children, including his own, to have no internet access by any means 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.
