A former Mobile County Commissioner accused of trying to meet a teen for sex has been granted bond by a judge. Prosecutors asked the judge for an $80,000 bond and the judge agreed to it.

Prosecutors say the investigation involving Jockisch has been ongoing for 5 months. Detectives say Jockisch was insistent on setting up a meeting with the person he was chatting with online. They say he thought it was a teenager when it was really a police officer undercover.

"At no time during these investigations do we bring up anything having to do with sexual activity it comes from the person that is responding to the ad," said Cpl. James Morton of the Saraland Police Department.

Jockisch's attorney, Jeff Deen argued against the practices of the department's internet crimes division.

"It's a ton of these cases and it is just kind of suspicious that one police man is on the internet and everybody is going to saraland to have sex with minors it is kind of weird," said Deen.

In 2004, Jockisch was convicted on federal corruption charges. He was immediately removed from office and served two-and-a-half years in prison. He was the District 2 Commissioner for 11 years.
