Everett S. Wargo, 65, formerly of Avoca, was arrested by Bath village police this morning when he showed up in Bath Village Court. He was turned over to sheriff's deputies.
Investigators say Wargo, who was listed as a Level 3 sex offender following a 1992 conviction for first degree attempted sodomy, fled New York state to avoid prosecution after a charge of forcible touching was lodged against him in March.
Wargo was arraigned March 26 on a charge that he grabbed a female earlier in the month at the County Office Building in Bath. He was scheduled to reappear April 20, but failed to do so, authorities said. He eventually surfaced in Killen[sic], Texas.
Wargo agreed to return to New York to face charges after he was located by police in Bell County, Texas. In addition to forcible touching, which is a class A misdemeanor, Wargo has been charged with bail jumping, also a class A misdemeanor, and failure to register change of address, a class E felony.

Too bad all fugitive sex offenders aren't so obliging.
