Howard C. Holder 47 yo of Dierks
Judge Yeargan set a $100,000.00 bond on September 23 on Holder for the offense of Rape. Investigator Jade Hughes was assigned this case after the Sheriff’s Office received information from the Crimes Against Children Hotline that a juvenile female had been sexually abused by Holder beginning as far back as three years ago, when the victim was fourteen. Investigators set up interviews with the victim and gathered information to be shared with Investigator Hughes. Investigator Hughes interviewed Holder (the suspect in this case) on September 22, when he (Holder) admitted the information reported of the sexual abuse of the juvenile did happen. Holder was placed under arrest at that time and placed in jail. Holder is set for a first appearance in court Wednesday, September 28.
