A local rape suspect is serving a 10-day sentence for creating a disturbance during his original bond hearing.

Kirk H. Urbine, 45, most recently of 6 Bank St., is charged with rape in connection with an incident Sunday in Norwalk. The Norwalk Police Department investigated the case.

"The victim's two young children were present at the time of the offense," Norwalk Assistant Law Director Scott Christophel said.

Urbine had a bond hearing Monday in Norwalk Municipal Court and appeared via closed circuit television linked with the Huron County Jail. Court records indicate Judge Eric Weisenburger found the suspect in direct contempt of court for his "intentional actions during (the) court proceedings which directly interfered with the operations of the court's function."

The defendant had another bond hearing Tuesday morning via closed circuit television.

Christophel cited Urbine's lengthy criminal record, which includes burglary and domestic violence charges dating back to the late 1980s and an unspecified "arrest record" from Georgia in 2005. The prosecutor also said the defendant was arrested on a felonious assault charge in Huron County in October 2012.

At the prosecutor's request, Weisenburger set the suspect's bond at $100,000 and ruled he isn't allowed to have any association or communication with the 25-year-old female victim.

When the judge asked Urbine if he had any response, the defendant told him, "You don't want to hear it." About the time Christophel discussed his criminal record and requested bond, Urbine could be heard muttering, "Get the (expletive) out of here."

Urbine was booked into the jail on domestic violence in addition to the rape charge. Court records indicate the man's accuser was granted a temporary protection order. Christophel said the woman testified Monday about the allegations.

If convicted of rape, Urbine faces three to 11 years in prison on the first-degree felony.

Huh it must run in this family what a shame


Holy cow !! If this dudes ears were any lower they would be under his chin !! Especially the one on the left side of his mug shot! It's even lower then the right side of his mug shot, he may want to request some Velcro and fasten it to that little fur patch on his face before it falls off


he looks proud


My one wish is that he will drop the soap when he takes a shower. I bet the victim would love to see that. He should have been an abortion!


I remember taking a health exam for an employer where the physician measured the circumference of my neck. He stated that people with large necks were more prone to sleep apnea and potential death resulting from suffocation- maybe we'll get lucky on this one.
