A man who fled his 2010 rape trial in New Hampshire was recently arrested in Tijuana during a drug raid on a house. Christopher Blanchette, the suspect, has been waiting in the San Diego county jail after being handed over by Mexican authorities.
According to the Berlin Daily Sun, the 31 year old suspect will be prosecuted on two counts of aggravated felonious sexual assault on a 15 year old. Blanchette was picked up in San Diego by Coos County sheriffs on August 23rd and returned to the Coos County House of Corrections.
