A former fugitive pastor chatted in a Henderson courtroom with police officers and a deputy public defender Tuesday while awaiting a brief hearing following his return in custody from Mexico on multiple child sex assault charges.
Otis Holland, 55, faces sexual assault with a minor under 16, sexual assault with a minor under 14, lewdness, child abuse and conspiracy to destroy evidence charges that could land him in prison for the rest of his life if he is convicted.
The judge ordered Holland to remain at the Henderson city jail until prosecutors and his lawyers submit written bail requests.
Holland, known as Reverend Otis to members of his United Faith Church congregation, was arrested Jan. 25 in Tijuana, Mexico, after a bail bonds company posted $30,000 to get him out of jail about a year ago.
