U.S. fugitive arrested in Costa Rica now in custody in Idaho
A high-risk fugitive from Ada County, Idaho, who had been on the run for more than five years, is now in custody. John Michael Brennan, 41, was detained by U.S. Marshalls and Costa Rican authorities, and on June 19 he was returned to the United States, the Idaho Department of Correction confirmed to local Idaho Press Tribune.
Brennan is now being held in the San Bernadino County Jail in San Bernadino, California, where he awaits extradition to Idaho. On March 15, 2006, Brennan was given a 5-15-year sentence for sexual battery of a minor, but the sentence was suspended.
Brennan disappeared in 2007 while on probation for the charge. He now faces the possibility of additional charges for absconding from probation and fleeing the country.
