No bail yet for Hutchison High School tutor accused of sexual abuse

No bail this morning for a Fairbanks North Star Borough School District tutor accused of sexually abusing a Hutchison High School teen.
34-year-old Claude Fowlkes appeared in Fairbanks Superior Court with Defense Lawyer Eve Soutie who asked that he be released on 1 thousand dollars bail along with a 3rd party custodian, his aunt, who could watch him except for the times she would be working.
Soutie suggested the use of an electronic monitoring system to supplement the times in which his 3rd party custodian would be absent.
Judge Michal McDonald rejected the idea of the monitoring system, further requesting a 3rd party who would have constant contact with Fowlkes.
Another bail hearing is scheduled for Thursday morning.
