Judge Denies Lower Bond For Child Rape Suspect
Boone County Sheriff’s Office
(Hebron, Ky.) – Boone County prosecutors say there could be more victims of an accused child-rape suspect.
The prosecutors made that statement Monday while asking a Boone County judge to maintain Michael Schweitzer’s bond on sex charges, WLWT-TV reports. Schweitzer is being held on a $200,000 bond, accused of drugging and sodomizing a 13-year-old boy at his Hebron home.
The judge declined to reduce Schweitzer’s bond. He also dismissed Schweitzer’s public defender and ordered him to pay for his own attorney.
Boone County Sheriff’s investigators arrested Schweitzer Wednesday, June 26. Police said Schweitzer sexually molested the teen after slipping him a sleeping pill the day before.
