BISMARCK (AP) — A Bismarck man accused of smuggling drugs into jail for his son is being held without bond.
Authorities say 63-year-old William Bruederle Sr. missed an earlier court hearing on a felony charge of attempt to deliver a controlled substance to an inmate.
His attorney could not be present when he appeared in court on a bench warrant, so South Central District Judge Bruce Romanick ordered him held without bond until a hearing can be held later.
Bruederle is accused of trying to smuggle Oxycontin tablets to his son inside a bar of soap.
Bruederle Jr. also was charged in the case. He pleaded guilty and was sentenced to serve a year in prison.
