A judge granted a $100,000 bond to a Miami plastic surgeon who faces attempted murder and kidnapping charges for allegedly holding his ex-girlfriend captive and beating her for several hours.
Dr. Orlando Llorente, 41, also faces charges of robbery, battery, tampering with a witness, false imprisonment and criminal mischief.
Llorente was granted bond Friday on the condition that he remain on house arrest and refrain from contacting his ex. That includes contacting her through third parties, social media or any type of electronic device.
He is allowed to leave the house for religious or professional events and to meet with his lawyer. He must also surrender his fire arms to Miami Police before returning home.
Llorente is still in custody while he waits to receive a GPS monitor and for police officers to confiscate his weapons. The earliest he may be able to leave may be Tuesday, according to the bondsman.
Police say Llorente became angry over a message he saw on his ex's Facebook page. He allegedly grabbed her by the hair and dragged her into a bathroom, forcing her head into a toilet and banging her head against the floor.
He also forced her into a bathtub where he straddled her, held a wet rag in her mouth and poured water over her head until she lost consciousness, according to officials
Llorente held her captive for 12 to 16 hours, during which time he would not let her use her phone, officials said. She escaped after he drove her to a CVS where he allegedly told her to text her mom and say she fell in the bathtub. When she tried to record the conversation, a confrontation ensued, Llorente smashed her phone and ran away, police said.
He turned himself in on May 7th.
