A judge set bond at $100,000 for a Fargo man accused of rape.

Fred Wilson Jr., 38, was arrested Tuesday on four felony counts from an alleged incident in May. His victim claimed she was raped several times, held against her will and forced to smoke crack cocaine.

Prosecutor Cherie Clark said Wilson's extensive criminal history makes him a potential flight risk, warranting a $100,000 bond. Wilson's crimes include attempted aggravated robbery, several driving under the influence charges, harassment, and domestic assault and harassment.

Wilson told Cass County District Court Judge Cynthia Rothe-Seeger that the high-priced bond was "a joke."

He will appear in court for a preliminary hearing at 1:30 p.m. Aug. 21.

If convicted, Wilson would face a minimum 20-year prison sentence on the rape charge. The three other charges each carry penalties of up to five years in prison.
