    Justin Shine, a Hanover resident accused of kidnapping, drugging and intent to rape a 6-year-old girl he lured into his apartment June 27 is due back in court Tuesday.
    Shine is accused of binding the girl with tape and leg shackles, injecting her with cocaine and trying to rape her. Cocaine was found in a urine sample taken from the child at South Shore Hospital in Weymouth shortly after she was found, Assistant Plymouth County District Attorney Sharon Donatelle said.
    “Clearly, the defendant had, I suggest, an evil intent to disable her,” Donatelle said, asking Judge Ronald Moynahan at a hearing earlier this month to order Shine held without bail because of the danger he would pose to the community if he was released.
    Moynahan, calling Shine a “terror to the community,” ordered him held.
    Prosecutors say Shine lured the girl into his apartment but let her go when police began knocking on doors after her mother reported her missing.
    Shine has pleaded innocent to charges of kidnapping, attempted rape, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon – a hypodermic needle – and resisting arrest.
    He is due in Hingham District Court for a pretrial conference Tuesday.
