Bruce Green is being held on a $5.4 million bond.

This morning Green appeared with a lawyer, but asked the judge for more time to consider whether he wants to hire a private attorney or use the public defender.

The 53-year-old man is charged with 15 counts of second degree forcible sexual offense, 14 counts of second degree rape, 14 counts of incest, 8 counts of statutory rape of a person under 15 by a defendant at least 6-years older than the victim, 4 counts of indecent liberties with a child, and 3 counts of felony child abuse.
