An accused child abuser has allegedly committed another sex crime while out on bond. In 2003, Barry Lenard Mullins was accused of molesting a 16-year-old girl. Bond was set at $5,000, and while out on bond awaiting trial, Mullins was arrested Monday for the same type assault, this time with an 11-year-old. Now police have gone to the D. A. to increase bond to keep the suspect behind bars. District Attorney Doug Valeska was instrumental in getting Mullins` bond raised to 300-thousand dollars, and is working with the Circuit Judges to make sure all cases involving sexual assault are in court by this April. Valeska says it is an ongoing problem that it is taking too long before these cases are being brought to court. Valeska says Mullins will remain in jail since he has not met bond, and has not gone to trial on either case. The victims in these cases have been directed to the Child Advocacy Center for counseling.
