WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- An man accused of sex crimes involving a 10-year-old girl is out of jail under a $300,000 bond.

Nathaniel Malpass made his first appearance in a New Hanover County courtroom Monday. He is charged with multiple crimes, including three counts of first degree sexual offense on a child.

Wilmington Police arrested Malpass Friday. He appeared in court Monday via video from jail.

His attorney said, initially he planned to ask for a bond reduction. But, a judge actually tripled the bond for Malpass from $100,000 to $300,000.

Malpass's attorney also signaled his intention to contest the validity of the charges. The defendant's family was in the courtroom Monday on his behalf.

The victim's mother in this case talked to us exclusively over the weekend. She said she never thought she'd have to deal with.

"No. I would never, and never with him," said the woman, who we are not identifying to protect the identity of the victim. "I mean, we trusted him. He was a part of our family."

Malpass' sister would not speak with us after the hearing. But, on our Facebook page wrote, "This is my brother ... Whatever happened to innocent until proven guilty?"

His attorney agreed to speak with us, and then walked away from the courthouse telling us he'd be right back, but he never returned.

The next court date for Malpass is July 17.

If found guilty, Malpass could face as much as three life sentences without parole.

Wilmington Has Dozens Of Registered Sex Offenders

Often a child raping, monster, will plead guilty to a lesser charge of, "Indecent Liberties With A Minor". The deal is cut, that they get probation, or maybe do just 1 month in solitary. I know one who gets disability, and food stamps. It makes me sick.

If proven guilty, he should

If proven guilty, he should be eligible for the death penalty. The children deserve better justice than what they are given.

WHY?????

New Hanover county continuously fails to hold these perverts/predators accountable. The system gives these subhumans more rights and protection than their victims. Im still dealing with my 2 stepdaughters trying to heal mentally from all of the abuse that they both suffered by the hands of their "father". Just so sad that our system protects these child sex offenders. The attorney's that protect them in court are no better someday these predators/ child sex offenders and their attorneys will face our creator. To the pervert who reads this and yes you know who you are J.B. you and your stupid smirck will have your day in court really soon . I'm Thankful for the WPD Detective on my stepdaughters case he is doing a great job. God Bless America!

Go to the courthouse and thank your...

...glorius judges and DA's. They're the ones responsible for putting perverted trailer trash like this and other violent criminals back into society to do as they please.

Remember this when you vote during the upcoming elections!

You're partially correct

remember, when voting, the DA with aglorious record of plea bargaining deals which allows crimminals to reenter society much sooner than they should; and then points to his superior conviction ratio when standing for re-election. Of course, he might mention it every time he steps in front of a camera.

remember Judges' sentencing is set by laws enacted by our Legislators. The Judge must stay within those guidelines.

But, our legislators are another story. They have the power to enact more stringent sentencing standards which would keep crimminals off the street.

In this case, the Judge had the presence of mind to triple the bond amount and not reduce it.

Prayers needed

I don't know if this man is innocent or guilty.
That is between him and GOD and the jury.

I ask for you to pray that no more children in this world will be sexually assaulted. Every prayer counts. Please pray for the safety of our children. GOD hears all prayers.

If there is a God, he should

If there is a God, he should be ashamed for not using every ounce of his wrath on these perverts as soon as they think about molesting a child.

GOD is all we have and need

The devil is responsible for the perverts who are hurting children.
I am a child sexual assault survivor. GOD gave me the power to be able to tell my story and to receive support.
GOD has helped me get sober and attend counseling to begin to have the life I deserve. GOD is all we have in this world besides each other. Please don't give up on GOD, he won't ever give up on you.

A tattoo on the neck, is

A tattoo on the neck, is usually the sign of a gangster.

Not really, lots of peeps are getting neck tattoos....

...and those of us that know them refer to them simply as..."Blithering Idiots". This blithering idiot just happens to be a twisted, perverted one that should willingly donate his genitals to the nearest wood chipper (no pun intended).
