A human trafficking suspect is still waiting for a bond to be set.
Alonso Santiagito is charged with human trafficking.
He was arrested last week at a Dothan hotel and placed in the Houston County Jail with no bond.
He is accused of holding a 17-year-old girl captive and forced her to engage in drugs and prostitution.
Thursday, his attorney, Mark Overall, asked for a bond to be set at $90,000.
He claims the alleged victim made this all up.
“She was picked up as a runaway. The people that tried to help her, she turned on. Why? I don't know. Maybe she wanted to go home. Maybe she had a change of heart. There's simply no evidence to support she is a kidnapping victim. That she was being held captive,” said Overall.
However the prosecution disagrees.
“Without getting into the facts of it a whole lot, we have to go with the facts of what the victim is telling investigators at this point. We have no reason to believe she is telling anything that is not the truth. She has been consistent throughout,” said prosecuting attorney, Jarrod Blumberg.
The prosecution is seeking a million dollars bond.
No bond has been set at this time.
