Bail Set at $1M for Mt. Vernon Man Charged for Child Porn

JEFFERSON CO. – Bail was set at $1 million Thursday for a 31-year-old Mt. Vernon man charged in Jefferson County Court with multiple counts of possessing child pornography.

Philip Borcherding was formally charged Thursday with nine Class X felony counts of possessing child pornography depicting a victim under the age of 13.

Jefferson County Sheriff’s deputies arrested Borcherding Tuesday at his home in the 800 block of South 20th in Mt. Vernon after detectives received information Monday regarding suspected child pornography activity in the county.

An investigation led to the execution Tuesday of a search warrant at Borcherding’s home and his subsequent arrest.

He remains in the Jefferson County Jail and is scheduled to next appear in court September 2 for a preliminary hearing and first appearance with court appointed attorney.
