(KSDK) -- A motion to reduce the $350,000 bond set for a bishop accused of raping and sodomizing a 15-year-old is denied. Bishop Giovanni Johnson, Sr., 47, is charged with six counts of statutory sodomy and six counts of statutory rape. Investigators said the crimes happened in north St. Louis between March 2007 and November 2007. Police said the victim is a 15-year-old who was a member of Victory of Praise Church where Johnson was the co-pastor.
