Former Teacher To Be Extradited To Bermuda

December 13, 2017

An American who previously lived in Bermuda and worked as a teacher, is reportedly set to be extradited to Bermuda from the United States, where he will face charges.

Overseas media have reported that court documents show the Judge signed off on an extradition certification that will send the man to Bermuda to face charges related to allegations of sexual abuse against a 17-year-old in 2007.

He is reported to left the island for the United States the evening he learned that the student reported the matter to school officials, authorities said.

Bermudian authorities issued an arrest warrant for him in 2016 as he returned to Mobile from a cruise. They issued the warrant after U.S. Customs and Border Patrol tipped them off about his reentry into the country.

The defendant apparently fought the extradition to Bermuda, claiming that the 10 year delay violated his “speedy trial rights,” however a U.S. Federal Judge ruled in favour of a request from law enforcement from Bermuda to extradite him.
