A request for a lower bond has been denied for a man accused of committing an indecent act with a young girl because he allegedly said she was being stupid.
The request was rejected in 30th District Court.
34 year old Donald Washington remains jailed on a $50,000 bond on a charge of indecency with a child, alleged to have occurred about 3 years ago.
He’s now been in jail for almost 200 days.
According to the girl, who talked to police and forensic interviewers last May, she was in the bathtub about two years earlier when she was 8 years old.
She said Washington came in and began touching her, and she told him to stop, but he kept doing it.
Police said they questioned Washington and he admitted touching the girl inappropriately for a few seconds because she was being stupid.
