Bond Set For Child Sex Abuse Suspect

Bond Set For Child Sex Abuse Suspect

Posted: Updated:
ROBERTSDALE, Alabama -

Bond was set at just over 100-thousand dollars for a Baldwin County man accused of sexually abusing children at his horse ranch in the Elsanor community.

Tommy Tucker was arrested Saturday at his ranch just east of Robertsdale.

Investigators say the 65 year old horse trainer sexually abused several girls under the age of 16 during sleep overs at the ranch this summer.

Tucker's family, friends and several girls who have spent the night at the ranch say he's innocent.

Sheriff Hoss Mack tells News 5 more charges are possible.

Tucker has hired high profile criminal defense attorney John Beck to defend him. Beck says the sexual abuse allegations are false and stem from a disgruntled family who used to be one of Tucker's customers.
