Bond reduced for NOPD officer accused of rape

New Orleans, La. - A judge reduces the bond of a suspended New Orleans Police Officer accused of raping a 15-year-old girl.

The judge reviewed the evidence and agreed Monday to cut Desmond Pratt's bond from $500,000 to $400,000 dollars.

In April, the 42-year-old was suspended without pay after he was arrested on charges of aggravated incest, sexual battery, and carnal knowledge of a juvenile.

The former homicide detective denies the allegations.

His trial is set to begin January 6th..
