Polish authorities say they have arrested an American citizen wanted for allegedly sexually abusing five boys in Virginia. Now a Polish court will have to decide whether to extradite him to the United States.
Interpol says 39-year-old John Edward Hamilton was scheduled to appear in court last October. He was expected to plead guilty to a series of sex offenses against 10 to 16-year boys between 1992 and 2008. But Interpol says he fled to Germany and was known to be traveling around Europe.
A Polish border guard spokesman says Hamilton was apprehended Wednesday on a bus as he was heading from Poland to Denmark.
According to Interpol, Hamilton is a former baseball and basketball coach and nanny. Police in Fairfax County, Virginia say Hamilton lived in Centreville.
