Man ex­tra­dited in child-abuse case

The Washington Post Sunday - - COMMUTER - — Tom Jack­man

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.
