UNDATED (WSAU-Wheeler News) A Wisconsin man will stay in jail during his federal court case on charges that he took young women to serve as prostitutes in the North Dakota oil fields. Federal Magistrate Judge Charles Miller of Bismarck said no yesterday to releasing 31-year-old Levell Durr on bond. The judge said Durr is a risk to the community -- and if he's released, he might flee to avoid future court proceedings.
Sheboygan Police were told that Durr took three women away against their will, and that he used drugs and violence to keep them in line. Prosecutors said one woman was kept in a dog kennel for a number of days after she broke one of his rules.
The F-B-I said Durr also maintained pit bulls in the Milwaukee area as part of a dog-fighting ring.
He was arrested in Bismarck last week.
