An Oklahoma teen accused of raping and molesting orphans during a mission trip to Kenya was ordered on Tuesday to remain in custody when a judge suspended an earlier decision to release him on bond, according to Reuters.


On Monday, an Oklahoma judge ruled that 19-year-old Matthew Durham of Edmond could be released on a $10,000 bond on the basis of his father's agreement to act as custodian, the surrender of his passport and a 24-hour home lockdown.


The teen was still in custody when U.S. prosecutors appealed and U.S. District Judge David Russell on Tuesday ordered the teen to stay in custody while the federal court considers the appeal.
