Video: Bond Set at $1 Million for Molestation Suspect

[bitsontherun k0hBN7LA]

TUPELO, Miss. (WCBI) – Bond is set at 1 million dollars for a Tupelo martial arts instructor charged with 2 counts of child molestation.

41 year old James Dutschke was arrested last week.

He faces 1 charge in Tupelo and 1 in Lee County.

The Lee County charge involves a 7 year old child.

At Tuesday’s arraignment, Justice Court Judge Rickey Thompson set the very high bond, because he feels Dutschke was in a position of trust, when the alleged incidents happened.

He worked at Tai-kwan-do Plus on Rankin Street.

Dutschke insists he didn’t do it.

He says,  “A very small molehill has been blown way out of proportion and has become a mountain of insurmountable proportions. I’m very eager to clear my name. ”
Tupelo police consider the investigation ongoing.
