A Clermont County Judge has set bond for Michael Tringelof at $2 Million after his arrest on charges he held a young boy against his will and tortured him during a sexually motivated kidnapping.
Tringelof's attorney argued he is a life long resident of the area and he didn't flee from authorities after being indicted Wednesday on charges of kidnapping and child endangering. The charges go back to an incident in 2005. The attorney says Tringelof is living with his mother while getting a divorce.
The Clermont County Prosecutor argued for a high bond, saying Tringelof should not be allowed out of jail because he is a danger to the community after two separate claims of torture. Prosecutors say a second victim claims to have had a similar experience with Tringelof, but the statute of limitations has expired in that case.
Tringelof's mom was present during Thursday's court proceedings, as was a relative of one of the victims.
Local 12's Deborah Dixon broke this story Wednesday and today she talked with the 16-year-old victim in this case. He actually first came forward seven years ago but no one believed him. It's a story you'll only see tonight on Local 12 News Live at 6:00p.m.
