Oklahoma man accused of molestation to be released

Posted: Updated:

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - A 19-year-old Oklahoma man charged with sexually abusing boys and girls while volunteering at an orphanage in Kenya that assists neglected children is scheduled to be released to confinement in his family's Edmond home.

Matthew Lane Durham is set for release from custody Tuesday after U.S. Magistrate Shon Erwin granted bond in the case. Prosecutors say they will appeal.

Durham faces up to life in prison if convicted of engaging in illegal sexual conduct in foreign places and other charges.

Erwin handed down his ruling on Monday after Durham's parents testified they do not believe allegations that Durham engaged in sex acts with as many as 10 children between the ages of 4 and 10 years old while volunteering at the Upendo Children's Home near Nairobi from April to June.
