WOODSTOCK – A Clinton, Mich. man charged with sexually exploiting a child remains in McHenry County Jail despite having his bond reduced.

Alexander Mitchell Blake, 19, was charged by Woodstock Police in August with seven counts of sexual exploitation of a child, all Class 4 felonies. He has pleaded not guilty.

On Friday, McHenry County Judge Sharon Prather reduced his bond to $10,000, meaning he'll need $1,000 to be released. Prather also ordered a sex offender evaluation.

Court documents indicate that Blake alleged exposed his penis to four victims for the purpose of sexual gratification.

His next court date is Sept. 24.
