Bond granted in molestation case

A $50,000 bond was granted Thursday to a man accused of sexually molesting a 9-year-old girl.

Solomon Carraway, 61, has been incarcerated for 15 months and his attorney, Willie Saunders, said Carraway was expecting a “quick day in court.”

“We’re still in a posture waiting for trial,” Saunders said.

Assistant District Attorney Laura Stewart opposed bond for Carraway, who is accused of inappropriately touching the girl on Dec. 4, 2010. He is charged with aggravated child molestation and child molestation. Stewart said the delay in trial is caused by a backlog in DNA testing.

Superior Court Judge Carl Brown granted the bond, but stipulated that the suspect have no contact with the victim.
