Herold’s domestic partner, Charles Dunnavant, is also charged in this case.  Dunnavant’s attorney filed a motion Wednesday to ban those involved in the case from speaking with the media.

There has not been a ruling made on that motion.  Both men are being held on $1 million cash-only bonds.

    They are both an extreme danger to society. Who do they think they are to hold a child for torture and sex like they have a right to do this? …AND selling the child to whatever pervert they decide!!! Put them in prison but DO NOT give them protective custody! No one should help them in any way. Too bad the cell could not be gotten into by other prisoners with a sign saying “always available “. They are inhumane and. disgusting and should be treated that way!

    There judgement day will come. I hope and pray these two will get what they deserve in jail! Anyone who would harm a child in that way is evil and is living for the devil.
