A judge agreed Wednesday to lower the bond of a Glendale man accused of rape and sodomy.
The $20,000 bond on Kevin Dale Floyd, 22, was lowered to a total of $4,500 cash during a preliminary hearing in Hardin District Court.
That would be 10 percent of $45,000 — $5,000 required for each of the nine charges filed against him.
Floyd faces six counts of third-degree rape, two counts of third-degree sodomy and one count of second-degree unlawful transaction with a minor.
The minor, a female younger than 16, told police she and Floyd engaged in sexual contact on eight occasions, six of which involved intercourse, according to the arrest citation.
The girl also said Floyd provided her with a marijuana joint, which she then smoked, according to the citation.
Hardin District Judge Kimberly Shumate said she thought the bond was fitting for the seriousness of the allegations.
Shumate thought Floyd presented a low risk and only seemed to present potential harm to one person, she said.
He has been ordered not to have contact with the girl if he posts bond and leaves Hardin County Detention Center, where he was lodged after being arrested July 5.
Floyd also is ordered to have no contact with anyone younger than 18 without direct parental supervision.
The rape and sodomy charges are each Class D felonies. Each charge is punishable by one to five years in prison.
