$50,000 Bond Set For Little League Coach

Bond was set at $50,000 for the little league coach arrested on child porn charges.

Joseph Lyon was in court Saturday morning for his first appearance.

Judge Michael Overstreet also denied Lyon a public defender, saying he makes too much money to qualify. So Lyon must now how his own attorney.

Lyon, who is a major in the Florida Army National Guard, was arrested Friday. The Bay County Sheriff's Office says they found videos on the 46-year-old's home computer, depicting children engaged in sex acts.

Lyon is charged with 2-counts of possession of the sexual performance of a child. But he could face more charges if the Florida Department of Law Enforcement finds more child porn during a forensic examination of his computer.

Lyon will be back in court May 21.
