A bond review has been set in a Viola man’s child porn case. 44 year old James Eric Haley appeared in Mercer County Circuit Court Monday morning for a pre-trial conference. He faces 16 felony counts stemming from an investigation involving a 15 year old girl. The case has been continued to February 11th for a bond review. Mercer County State’s Attorney Meeghan Lee has indicated that the federal prosecutor’s office is reviewing the matter and it could be moved to U.S. District Court.
