FLORENCE, S.C. - The president and founder of Cathedral Bible College faces federal charges that he made international students work long hours with little pay by threatening their legal status.

The Sun News of Myrtle Beach and WBTW reported that bond was set at $250,000 at a hearing Friday for Reginald Wayne Miller. Under the terms of his bond, he is not allowed to visit the college's campus in Marion or communicate with current or former foreign students.

Miller's attorney said his friends and family will try to raise the bond money.

Agents with Homeland Security Investigations filed a criminal complaint against Miller this week, saying they have probable cause to charge him with forced labour, a felony that carries a maximum prison sentence of 20 years for each count.
