Surric Hayes, 28, entered a plea of not guilty to the charges and waived his preliminary exam while in 14A-1 District Court Wednesday. Lawyers on the case indicated that a plea agreement may be reached between the two sides before the case comes before a jury.
A man contacted Saline police after finding child pornography on Hayes’ computer, according to Ann Arbor police. Investigators then examined Hayes’ computer and found a number of images of child pornography, police said.
Hayes is currently free on a personal recognizance bond. His next scheduled court appearance is a pretrial hearing in front of Washtenaw County Trial Court Judge Donald Shelton at 1:30 p.m. Nov. 22.
If convicted, Hayes faces up to four years in prison for each charge.
