Case Western Reserve University
Ariel Castro (C) awaits his turn as his brother Onil (L) is arraigned at Cleveland Municipal for the kidnapping of three women May 9, 2013 in Cleveland, Ohio, with County Public defender Kathleen DeMetz (R). Unemployed American bus driver Ariel Castro appeared in court Thursday to faces charges that he kidnapped and raped three young women and held them in his home for a decade. The 52-year-old from Cleveland, Ohio did not enter a plea and stood with his head bowed while the court set a large bond of two million dollars per case, effectively ensuring that he will remain in detention. Castro's two brothers -- Pedro, 54, and Onil, 50 -- were also detained on Monday because they were with Ariel when he was arrested, but will not be charged in connection with the kidnapping.
However, I can say that this case absolutely is not similar in any regard to the young ladies that were held against their will in Cleveland
The Cleveland case is unbelievable ... It makes all law enforcement and social services review their policies dealing with these types of cases.
If it will help solve a case that happened at Ohio State University, then we felt that it was the right thing to do ... The university lost two young, brilliant students, and so did Ohio University, they lost three.More quotes »
