HOUSTON—The man known as “The Finnisher” was back in court Friday morning to see if will be able to bail out of jail. Rik Melartin went before a judge on a bond hearing.
For a second time, he’s charged with sexually assaulting a child. But this time, police aren’t releasing much information.
Two days ago, a judge denied bond. There was no word on whether or not that decision has been changed.
Melartin is a former Olympian from Finland. He made headlines last year when he pulled a gun on a robber in his Bellaire neighborhood. He later incorporated the name ‘The Finnisher’ into his car ads for John Keating Chevrolet.
