Sex offender asks to be released on bond, 2 judges say no

A Hartsville man charged with abducting and assaulting two teenage girls in a makeshift underground dungeon wants to be released on bond.

But two South Carolina judges have said no.

Convicted sex offender Kenneth Hinson asked a judge to release him on bond for the burglary charges he also faces.

Hinson was arrested last week, four days after the girls were abducted and sexually assaulted.

He will remain behind bars in Darlington County.
