A Dexter man in jail after an investigation found child porn on his home computer will not go to trial in December.  27-year-old Arlie Lewis was arrested in October 2011, after his wife reported to police that she found 27 child porn pictures on his cell phone.  A further investigation located 900 images of child porn on his home computer.  The prosecutor filed 63 counts of felony child porn possession.  Lewis is also charged with child molestation after allegedly inappropriately touching his 2-year-old daughter.  He has admitted viewing the photos but denied the molestation.  Lewis remains jailed on a 250-thousand-dollar bond.  Judge Stephen Sharp set his jury trial for December 12th in Kennett.  But that’s been continued.  A hearing is set for January 11th instead.
