LAWRENCEVILLE - A Buford couple charged with child cruelty for keeping their 13-year-old son locked in a room in their basement was denied bond at a magistrate court hearing in Gwinnett County Thursday. <br />
Recardo Wimbush, who was a star football player for Georgia Tech, and his wife Therian admitted to keeping their son locked in the basement, saying he had molested five of his siblings.<br />
The Wimbush's 10 children were placed in state custody after the couple turned themselves in to authorities last month.<br />
According to Atlanta media reports, the boy was not malnourished and he showed no signs of physical abuse. A Gwinnett police detective testified he scraped paint from the walls as punishment.<br />
Both Recardo and Therian Wimbush face charges of first degree child cruelty and false imprisonment. Those charges have been bound over to Gwinnett County Superior Court, according to a report in the Gwinnett Daily Post.<br />
