By BBN Staff: A US judge has set a $1 million bond for wanted fugitive Ladd Duane Ottofy who was detained in Belize last month.

On Thursday, September 19, Belizean authorities detained Ottofy, 60 at an apartment in Ladyville.

Ottofy faces multiple charges of sexual offenses, including three counts of first-degree sexual abuse, one count of second-degree rape and one count of second-degree sodomy in Daviess county, Kentucky.

Ottofy had fled the US after a relative bonded him out with $25,000. He was released on the condition of making his court appearance but then, he disappeared.

After being detained in Belize, Ottofy was returned to Daviess County to face the charges.

At the hearing held yesterday, the Daviess Circuit Judge set Ottofy’s bond at $1 million, full-cash.

He will appear in court again on November 20, 2019.
