SPRINGFIELD – A Monson man and a Ludlow man both denied child pornography charges in separate cases Thursday in Hampden Superior Court.

Michael Sears, 51, of 85 Highland Ave., Ludlow, pleaded innocent to three counts of possession of child pornography.

Bail was set at $10,000 personal surety by Judge Richard J. Carey.

Kermit Pike, 39, of 321 Stafford Road, Monson, pleaded innocent to two counts of “distributing material of a child in the nude” and three counts of possession of child pornography.

Bail was set at $10,000 personal surety.

Both men were summonsed to court for the arraignment.

Carey set conditions both Sears and Pike must follow.

They cannot have unsupervised contact with children under 18 years old and they cannot work or volunteer with children under 18 years old.

Assistant District Attorney Jane E. Mulqueen asked Carey for the condition that neither man be allowed to use a computer or the Internet.

Carey set that condition for Pike.

Mark H. Bluver, Sears’ lawyer, said Sears needs to use a computer at his job. Mulqueen agreed to the condition that Sears only use a computer in his employment.
