FLORENCE, S.C. - The president and founder of Cathedral Bible College in Marion faces federal charges that he made international students work long hours with little pay by threatening their legal status.
At a hearing Friday for Reginald Wayne Miller, a bond of $250,000 was set with terms that include he can't be on the college campus or communicate with any current or former foreign students.
Miller said only that he understood and agreed to the requirements. His public defender said Miller's friends and family will try to raise the bond money.
Agents with Homeland Security Investigations filed a criminal complaint against Miller this week saying they have probable cause to charge him with forced labor, a felony that carries a maximum prison sentence of 20 years for each count.
