A Baltimore-area man was charged with 10 counts of possessing child pornography in Harford County, according to prosecutors at a recent bail review.

The man, William Meade Higbee, 70, has addresses in the 2900 block of Pinewood Avenue in Halethorpe and the 3300 block of Edmondson Avenue in Baltimore, according to court documents.

Higbee has five prior arrests and a pending court date in another child pornography case, an assistant state's attorney said at a Tuesday bail review.

He was arrested Oct. 23 on the new charges, which stem from a February 2012 incident, according to online records.

He was originally ordered held in lieu of $1 million bail and poses "a significant risk to the community and children in the community," the assistant state's attorney said.

District Court Judge Susan Hazlett reduced his bail to $25,000. Higbee was still at the Harford County Detention Center Thursday afternoon.
