New charges filed against Maisenhelder

There are more charges against a local karate instructor. Last month, John Maisenhelder was arrested on three counts of taking indecent liberties with a child as the result of a joint investigation between Wilmington police and New Hanover County deputies. Tuesday, he was served with four additional counts of taking indecent liberties with a child. Few details are available about those additional charges, but we do know investigators encouraged parents and children with concerns about Maisenhelder to come forward after his original charges were announced. There is no change to his current $40,000 secured bond. Maisenhelder bonded out shortly after the initial charges were filed.
