DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. — The man accused of trying to abduct a 14-year-old Miller Grove High School student in DeKalb County was back in court today for a probable cause hearing.
Alvin Joiner, 60, is facing charges of kidnapping and enticing a child. The charges stem from a Feb. 6 incident in which the girl told police she was walking to school when a man in a blue SUV, identified as Joiner, pulled up to her and asked if she needed a ride.
The DeKalb County detective on the case explained the victim's version of events in court.
According to police, Joiner forced her into his vehicle and asked her inappropriate, sexual questions. She told police he drove a short distance before letting her out.
In court today, the suspect's attorney asked for the enticing charge to be dismissed, saying there was no actual act involved.
"There was no allegation of any request for any type of sexual interaction between the two. There was no allegation of any desire expressed or any other form of enticement, " the attorney said
Joiner has been granted as $100,000 bond and, at last check, is still in jail. His attorney asked for a reduction, but that request was denied.
