Bail hearing scheduled for Frank Selas
ALEXANDRIA- A bail hearing has been set for a former children's show host accused of sexually abusing a child during a 1979 camping trip in central Louisiana.
State District Judge Mary Doggett will consider Nov. 3 the motion for bail that attorney Mike Small made on behalf of Frank Selas several weeks ago.
KNOE-TV reports Small is currently being held in the Rapides Parish jail.
Selas is the former host of the Mr. Wonder TV show that aired in Monroe in the 1970s.
Small says Selas is innocent.
Selas was arrested in San Diego in January and indicted in February on two counts of aggravated rape and other charges relating to one victim.
