Bond was denied Friday for a man arrested earlier this month on a charge of trafficking a person for sexual servitude.

Earthell Tyler, 29, will remain in the county jail pending possible indictment and trial in Richmond County Superior Court.

Tyler was arrested Oct. 2 at the Motel 6 on Boy Scout Road. Narcotics officers responding to complaints of drugs and prostitution arrested Tyler, said Assistant District Attorney John O’Neal. Two woman with Tyler told officers that he moved them from state to state to have sex with customers solicited through an internet website.

The women, ages 22 and 25, said Tyler wouldn’t let them call family or friends and never let them have any money, O’Neal said. Tyler allegedly said he used threats of violence to keep them in line, O’Neal said.

Tyler, of Columbia, S.C., has prior convictions for forgery and larceny, conspiracy and possession of stolen property.

You people amaze me. Dichotomy, who made you Judge, jury and hangman. I recognize our system is ripe with corruption but it should at least have some resemblance of legitimacy. As to this guy being denied bond, this is another example of our idiot judge's not knowing the law. Bond is for one purpose and one purpose only. "To guarantee for the accused to be back in court at his appointed time." Nothing more, nothing less. The two criteria used to deny bond are, the flight risk of the accused, or is he a threat to the community. Again, no more, no less. This idiot judge has used his power of setting bond as a punishment rather than its intended purposes. I doubt if this guy even owns a passport and I fail to see where his involvement in adult entertainment is a treat to anyone. If the report is true as released, (probably not), then the idiot also known as judge has substituted his misguided will for that of the law.

Willie Lee, the accused is

Willie Lee, the accused is not from Richmond County. What makes you believe, with a prior record that he will just jaunt his happy little but back to court from Columbia?
