Morris was charged with four counts of indecent solicitation of a child and five counts of dissemination of indecent material to a minor. A judge ordered him held on $5,000 surety bail with special conditions, including having restricted internet use and no contact with children.

If Morris is found guilty, he could face up to five years in prison.
