HENDERSON, Ky (WEHT) – A court has granted a bond reduction request for an Evansville man charged with child solicitation and possession of child pornography.

- He is not to access the internet or social media of any kind with the exception of work related purposes only.
- He is not to use any electronic device or mobile phone with the exception of work related purposes only.
- He is not to have contact with any non-related person under 18-years-old.
