Fugitive Va. coach arrested in Poland
A former Fairfax County youth baseball coach who fled the country after his arrest for sexually molesting a 12-year-old boy was captured Wednesday in Poland, Fairfax police said.
John E. Hamilton, 39, of Centreville was scheduled to plead guilty in October to aggravated sexual battery and three counts of taking indecent liberties with a child under his supervision. But he did not appear in court.
He is a former coach in the Fort Hunt Youth Athletic Association.
Police said he was arrested by the Polish Border Guard as he attempted to cross into the Czech Republic. American authorities are trying to extradite him to the United States.
