The motion for a reduction of bail was denied Thursday for a man accused of sexually molesting two teenage girls who attended the Mormon church where he served as bishop in Menifee.

Bail remains at $65,000 for Todd M. Edwards, 49 and a former resident of Menifee, who remains in custody at the Robert Preston Detention Center in Riverside. Judge Becky L. Dugan set a date of July 24 for a felony settlement conference.

Edwards previously entered a plea of not guilty to charges of sexual battery, sexual penetration with a foreign object, and witness intimidation. He served for a time as bishop of the Menifee Ward of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
