Trial Date Set For Man Facing Child Pornography Charges

TERRE HAUTE, Ind.  – A Terre Haute man that faces 10 counts of possession of child pornography made a court appearance Wednesday.

49 year old Michael Allen Perkins will stand trial in March.

Pennsylvania State Police requested the help of the Terre Haute Police to conduct an interview with Perkins because he allegedly had inappropriate conversations with a 14-year-old male in a private chatroom.

Police say that they found hundreds of sexual images involving children, teens, and adults on a number of electronic devices at his home.

He is being held in the Vigo County Jail on a $75,000 bond with no 10 percent allowed.
