Both sides rest in bail bondsman case

KSAL StaffSeptember 13, 2014

Jurors are getting the weekend off before deciding the fate of a Kansas bail bondsman accused of coercing women he bailed out of jail to have sex with him.

The Hutchinson News reports that both sides rested Friday in the trial of 66-year-year-old Dwight Jurgens. He’s accused of two counts of aggravated human trafficking, four counts of attempted aggravated human trafficking, aggravated criminal sodomy and rape.

Prosecutors allege Jurgens told women he would revoke their bonds if they didn’t have sex with him. He was a bonding agent for TNT Bonding. His daughter also is a bonding agent, and she testified that the company took riskier clients.

The jury will return Monday morning for court instructions and two hours of closing statements before beginning deliberations.
