Authorities say an Amish man from northeast Missouri sexually assaulted five girls, ages 5 to 15, in Wisconsin and Missouri.
Chester Mast, 26, of Curryville, Missouri was arrested in late May. Four the victims were from Missouri and one was from Waushara County, Wis., where Mast lived for a time.
Mast is jailed in Pike County on $100,000 bond, but Korte says that if he posts bond, he will be extradited to Wisconsin and held without bond.
He is charged in Missouri with two counts of statutory rape, two counts of statutory sodomy and one count of sexual misconduct involving a child. He is charged with sexual assault and incest in the Wisconsin case.
