A Bucklin man charged with 43 counts of first-degree sex offenses entered a plea of not guilty on September 7, when 54-year-old Roger Cupp waived formal arraignment.
The court denied bond modification at this time, and a bond hearing is scheduled for September 9, 2021. The Highway Patrol previously reported Cupp was to be held on no bond.
The Patrol arrested Cupp on September 3 on sex offenses, including statutory sodomy, statutory rape, and child molestation. During an investigation, it was determined that Cupp had committed multiple sexual offenses involving one child over a five-year period.
