Crime

Bartow, Florida -- The man accused of using an "arcade van" to sexually prey on kids made his first appearance before a judge Wednesday.

Leonard Filipkowski, 44, is being represented by an assistant public defender in the case against him that includes 20 2nd degree felony counts of lewd and lascivious acts with minors.

The assistant state attorney originally asked for a bond of $100,000 on each of the counts, but the judge decided to set bond at $50,000 per count.

The lead detective in the case told the judge there may be three more victims in addition to the two known of at this time.

If convicted, Filipkowski faces 19 years in Florida State Prison.
