An Allegheny County Judge has decreased the bail of a former Pittsburgh Public Schools police officer accused of sexually abusing three male students more than a decade ago.

Common Pleas President Judge Donna Jo McDaniel on Tuesday modified the bail of Robert Lellock, 43, of Beltzhoover to $50,000 from $1 million. Lellock has been held in the Allegheny County Jail since Sept. 20.

“I requested his bail be reduced given the fact that $1 million was completely (ridiculous),” said his attorney, Timothy Kidd.

Arrangements to post his bail are in the works, Kidd said. Mike Manko, a spokesman for Allegheny County District Attorney Stephen A. Zappala, said the office objected to the bond reduction. Manko declined further comment.

Lellock is scheduled to stand trial on Jan. 23. He is facing 16 charges, including involuntary deviate sexual intercourse with a minor for allegedly pulling three male students between the ages of 13 and 14 out of class and inappropriately touching them inside a janitor's closet when they attended Arthur J. Rooney Middle School in the North Side in the late 1990s.
