DEARBORN (WWJ) – A judge has ordered a Florida pastor to appear in court ahead of a protest scheduled for later this week outside a mosque in Dearborn.

Wayne County prosecutors say they fear the Reverend Terry Jones’ appearance outside the Islamic Center of America on Friday could lead to violence.

Dearborn’s 19th District Court Judge Mark Somers has ordered Jones to appear Thursday to answer questions about the event.

Prosecutors want Jones to post a “peace bond” to pay for additional police officers during the demonstration.
