An order for arrest out of Hertford County was also served on Holland for felony embezzlement.

Holland’s total bond was set at $50,000 secured.

Gates County Sheriff Ray Campbell said that he expects Holland to make bond on Friday.

“The warrant from Onslow County shows he failed to appear [in court] on April 27, 2015 on the charges of contributing to delinquency of a juvenile, and sexual battery,” Campbell said.

When asked about a 2007 case where Holland was charged in Jacksonville by the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation with indecent liberties with a child and contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile, Sheriff Campbell said he had no knowledge of that crime.

“All I have to go on is the 2015 warrant from the Onslow County Sheriff’s Office,” Campbell said.
