DIXON – A Dixon man who was in Lee County Jail more than 2 years on child pornography and aggravated sex abuse charges now is free on bond.

Nikos M. Kastrinsios, 41, posted $1,000 Tuesday.

He was arrested Jan. 21, 2011. His bond, originally $50,000, was reduced to $10,000 in April 2011. A motion to further reduce his bond was denied June 13.

Police say that Kastrinsios had oral sex with a boy younger than 17 in December 2010, and that a search of his home turned up child pornography.

Among the conditions of his release, he is to have no access to the Internet or contact with the boy. 

A pretrial conference is set for Tuesday.

Yes. Sterling and Dixon have had bans for years. It’s time for Rock Falls to impose a ban.
No. It would be too great a burden for homeowners to dispose of fallen leaves in other ways.
