A Tulsa County judge has denied a request to reduce the bail amount for a minister who was charged with lewd molestation and arrested Wednesday.
Damien Keith Bonner, 32, was charged with six counts of lewd molestation and was arrested by the Northern Oklahoma Violent Crimes Task Force following an investigation by the Owasso Police Department. He remains in the Tulsa Jail with bail set at $300,000.
Bonner's attorney, Stan Monroe, filed a motion for bond reduction in the case on Thursday. Tulsa County Special Judge David Youll denied the motion Friday at a 3 p.m. hearing, which Bonner did not attend, court records show.
