State District Judge Denise Collins said Andrew Sustaita Jr. will have to be supervised by his wife or parents when he is with his daughter.
Defense attorneys said the photos are not a crime, but prosecutors asked that Sustaita, who has been a peace officer for a six years, be prohibited from any contact.
After a brief hearing, the judge compromised on the no-contact order. Sustaita is also prohibited from contact with domesticated or farm animals. He was originally arrested last week after an online task force allegedly connected him to obscene material including images of sexual contact with a dog.
In that case, he is charged with a class A misdemeanor of obscenity. After that arrest, his laptop was searched and he was charged with possession of child pornography.
If convicted of the third-degree felony, he could face a maximum punishment of 10 years in prison.
The former deputy is free after posting a $30,000 bail. He appeared in court with his mother and attorneys Nathan Hennigan and Kristin Guiney, who did not comment after the hearing. Prosecutors also declined to comment.
Sustaita was relieved of duty after his arrest, according to the sheriff's office.
