— A judge on Tuesday reduced the bond for a former Wake County YMCA worker accused of sexual battery.

Kim Kelly, 36, remained in the Wake County Jail Tuesday evening after he bond was lowered from $25,000 to $10,000.

Kelly was arrested in January as part of an Internet sex sting. Authorities said he initiated a conversation online with an investigator posing as a child in which sexual acts were mentioned.

Wake County authorities then arrested Kelly after a 16-year-old counselor at Southwest Wake YMCA in Apex said she had been touched inappropriately last year.

Kelly worked at the YMCA in Apex less than two months, officials said.
