Judge refuses to lower bail for teacher accused of kidnapping

By Krista Hostetler. CREATED Nov 14, 2013

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- For the second time, a judge is refusing to lower bail for a local kindergarten teacher accused of kidnapping a 16-year-old girl.

Melvyn Sprowson's bail still sits at more than $500,000.

Police said Sprowson and the teen met online when she responded to the 44-year-old's craigslist ad for a roommate.

Sprowson will be back in court for his preliminary hearing next Monday.
