NEWPORT — Two Newport men arrested last week on charges of possessing child pornography have been released from jail on their own recognizance.

WCPO news partner Fort Thomas Matters reported that Campbell County Circuit Court Judge Gregory Popovich placed a $1,000 bond on Michael A. Filacchione, 31, and Troy Knox, 30, saying that he saw them as low and moderate risks.

"I only set the bond at $1000 cash or property because the way I understand the facts, (Filacchione) wasn’t alleged to have been involved in anything, he was just looking at it on the computer," said Popovich.  Only a short time later, Popovich justified the reasoning for the bond by reiterating that the alleged was, “…just merely looking at it.”
