An officer with the Lantana Police Department appeared in court Friday morning to face charges of distributing obscene material and using a two-way device to facilitate a felony.

Chief Sean Scheller said Officer Christopher Decker is a patrol officer, who is on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of the case.

Decker was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail Thursday evening. His attorney, Jo Ann Barone, said her client should be presumed innocent.

Barone said the incident was a mistake. When asked to clarify she said Decker sent someone “his girlfriend’s adult website.”

Who it was sent to is unknown.  

A probable cause affidavit, which should reveal more details, has not yet been released.

Decker’s bail was set at $4,000.
