GARRETSON (AP) - A judge has set bond at $500,000 cash for the Garretson School District business manager, who's accused of soliciting a minor.

Fifty-eight-year-old Rodney Fischer was arrested Tuesday and made his initial court appearance Thursday. He did not enter a plea.

Authorities allege Fischer was caught in an online sting in which he solicited sex from what he thought was a 13-year-old girl but was actually an undercover agent.

Superintendent Guy Johnson says Fischer has been suspended from his school duties.
