Bowen Turner is back behind bars. The South Carolina man accused of three rapes was arrested for disorderly conduct and given bail, but Turner denied bail on another charge stemming from a probation violation.
Turner, 19, was arrested on Mother’s Day and after his arrest, he allegedly called a female jailer the “B-word” and tried to bite off the finger of another. This latest incident happens after a controversial sentence was handed down in April.
Orangeburg County Court Judge Markley Dennis sentenced Turner to five years of probation as part of a plea for assaulting a woman in 2019. The charge was reduced from an earlier charge of first-degree criminal sexual conduct, even though the victim was willing to testify and it was the third sexual assault accusation against Turner in less than two years.
Ankle monitoring logs show that Turner violated his previous bond dozens of times, visiting golf courses, restaurants, shopping centers and even going out of state.
