Today, a Pickens County judge set his bond at 501,000 dollars.

The case began last week when Pickens County Sheriff Todd Hall says a passerby noticed a woman in trouble and called deputies.

The woman was reportedly taken to a Columbus hotel against her will and had severe injuries.

She was able to escape and return to Pickens County.

Prude was arrested at the Columbus Inn and Suites.

He is still in the Pickens County jail.
