Bond for 58-year-old James Alderman was set at $400,000 on each count for a total of $800,000.

WJTV learned in court that Alderman’s wife runs a daycare out of their home on Wilder Drive. We’re told she keeps three children and that the couple is also raising two of their grandchildren.

The victims in the case were allegedly abused in the home, but officials did not say if they were children who attended the daycare.

The affidavit says the victims are ages 6 and 3 years old.

Alderman has been a Flora police officer for about 25 years.
