Rape suspect has bail revoked after he phones victim's home ANNAPOLIS/SOUTH COUNTY Davidsonville * Edgewater * Shady Side * Deale

A 37-year-old Annapolis man awaiting trial on rape charges was ordered locked up in the county detention center yesterday after prosecutors said he called the victim's home while free on bond.

Donald D. Poindexter of the 1100 block of Frederick Douglas St. was ordered held on a $100,000 cash bond yesterday after Assistant State's Attorney Cynthia M. Ferris asked that bond be increased because of the Nov. 2 call, made six days after Mr. Poindexter was released from jail on a $15,000 bond.

Mr. Poindexter allegedly raped the 12-year-old daughter of his ex-girlfriend Oct. 17, according to a police report, in the Glen Burnie apartment the girl shared with her mother.

Mr. Poindexter left a phone message on the mother's answering machine Nov. 2, and it "so terrified the mother and daughter" that they are now staying with friends, Ms. Ferris said.

Defense attorney Jonas Legum said that Mr. Poindexter called the mother because he thought that she had called him first.

But Judge Raymond G. Thieme Jr. said that by making the call, Mr. Poindexter violated the terms of his release.
