FLINT, MI — A Burton foster parent facing a dozen child pornography-related charges was ordered Tuesday, April 30, to undergo a psychiatric exam to see if he is competent to stand trial.

Michael Thomas Bradley, 57, faces six charges each of child sexual abusive activity and
using a computer to commit a crime. If convicted, he faces up to 20
years in prison

Bradley’s attorney, Frank J. Manley, said he believes the testing is necessary in light of the seriousness of the allegations against his client.

The court is expected to review the results of the examination May 28.

Bradley was initially charged with six counts of possession of child sexually abusive material but prosecutors added the 12 more-serious charges last week.

The possession of child sexually abusive material charges were also dismissed by prosecutors Tuesday.

Manley said his office has been notified that more charges may be brought against his client as authorities continue their investigation .

Amanda Holdsworth, director of communications for Lutheran Service of
Michigan, said Bradley had been licensed through the agency as well as
the state’s Bureau of Children and Adult Licensing.

Two foster
children in Bradley’s care were immediately removed from his home
Thursday, April 17, when the organization was notified by Burton police of the charges, she said.

Those children have been placed with
other foster parents. Bradley has had other foster children, but
Holdsworth said she could not release the exact number.

Bradley is being held without bond, according to court records.
