Judge Denies Bond In Alleged Teen Abuse Case

ATLANTA (AP/WAOK) – A judge has denied bond for a Georgia couple accused of confining their teenage son to a bedroom for years with little food.

Paulding County court administrator Frank Baker says Judge Tonny Beavers denied bond Friday to Paul and Sheila Comer, the stepfather and mother of Mitch Comer.

Officials say lawyers for the Comers argued the couple be granted bond and given ankle monitors. But prosecutors said the couple is a flight risk and has moved many times in the last decade.

A magistrate court judge had denied bond Oct. 4. The Comers were indicted Oct. 23.

They have been in custody since mid-September, after 18-year-old Mitch Comer was found wandering a Los Angeles bus station Sept. 11 and told police he had suffered years of abuse.
