Holland Bond Hearing

A Dothan church leader accused of child molestation is still behind bars after Judge Larry Anderson takes into consideration setting a lower bond.

Fifty-three-year-old Earl Holland is charged with eight counts of first degree sexual abuse on eight-year-old girls.

Holland's attorney, former Dothan Police Chief John White, fought to get Holland out of jail on bond Friday morning.

Holland’s bond was denied initially, and then set at $2 million which White says Holland can not pay.

Friday Judge Larry Anderson said he must take the matter into consideration.

District Attorney Doug Valeska wants Holland to remain behind bars for the sake of the victims.

“The girls are afraid to take a shower to be alone they went to the church where he preyed upon them,” said Valeska.

Holland’s attorney suggested a lower bond price of $20,000 for each case.

That would be $160,000 bond which Holland’s attorney says Holland could pay.
