HOT SPRINGS, S.D. (AP) - A magistrate judge has set bond at $2 million cash or surety for a Fall River County jailer accused of raping a female inmate.

The Rapid City Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1f1gWio ) that the attorney for 30-year-old Anthony Peet requested his client be released on personal recognizance Wednesday, but prosecutor Ken Orrock objected because he considers Peet a flight risk.

Peet, of Oral, was arrested Feb. 16 in Bryan, Ohio, after authorities in Fall River County issued a warrant for his arrest on a charge that he raped the inmate in January.

Peet could face more than 50 years in prison if convicted of second-degree rape. He’s due back in court for a preliminary hearing on March 10.
