James Dutschke arrested for Child Molestation
TUPELO - The bond for a Tupelo man charged with child molestation has been set at a total of $1 million.
James E. Dutschke, 41, of Tupelo was charged with two counts of child molestation Friday, one count from the Tupelo Police Department and a second from the Lee County Sheriff's Office.
Lee County Justice Court Judge Rickey Thompson set a $500,000 bond for each charge totaling $1 million.
Thompson said he set the high bond because Dutschke was in a position of trust at the time the alleged inappropriate contact happened.
Thompson was referring to Dutschke's position as a martial arts instructor.
Tupelo Police investigators said the investigation is ongoing.

ThIs man was my first coach where I received my first black belt.
Although I find this hard to believe because he was a very strict and stand up kind of person, it would be slightly almost impossible to think he would commit to such an act, my question is would my black belt(2nd) of this style would be honored still if it was awarded by a pedophile?
Since then I've done muay Thai and cross trained in my early color belt stages, and later started bjj, and kung fu I'm still recovering from my weight training accident. But holy ****, I'm not sure what my reaction is.
I studied under him when I was around 14. And did Thai at 15. I will not lie to you this mans sparring skills were exceptionally good, he cross trained in boxing, kyokushin, and taekwondo, we sparred without pads and then with pads without chest protectors when we worked on form.
This coach helped me win 1st at nationals. I'm kind of lost for words what to say here, except I hope he burns in holy hell if this is true.
I will add more to the story, when I get back from gym. He was pretty rude to his kids.
