The case of a Bloomfield man accused of sexually abusing and stalking a juvenile male took another strange twist today.
According to online court records, prosecutors requested that the bond set for Kenneth Wayne Turner be revoked, and replaced with a substantially higher bond.
Turner was arrested on September 28 in Bloomfield and charged with seven felony counts of Sexual Abuse in the Third Degree after a 17-year old juvenile male accused Turner of sexually abusing him while he lived in Turner's Bloomfield home.
Turner's bond in that case was set at $10,000 and he was released from custody after posting 10 percent.
Turner's new bond in that case has been set at $100,000 cash only and a bench warrant has been issued for his arrest.
Turner has a bond review hearing set for October 16.
Turner's legal troubles don't stop there, he is facing a charge of stalking in Wapello County, after police say he repeatedly drove past the youth shelter where his accuser has been living since Turner's arrest.
Turner posted $5,000 dollar cash bond in that case and was released.
Court records don't indicate any the status of that case.
