Man extradited in child-abuse case
A Fairfax County man who fled the country in 2009, shortly before he was scheduled to plead guilty to molesting a 12-year-old boy, has been extradited back to Fairfax after his capture in Poland last August.
John E. Hamilton, 39, lived in Centreville and was a longtime baseball coach in the Fort Hunt Youth Athletic Association in the Mount Vernon area. In 2009, a boy who played for him in 1997 said that he’d been sexually assaulted years earlier, and Hamilton was arrested. He was scheduled to plead guilty to five felony sex crimes in October 2009 but failed to appear in court.
