Law enforcement officers with the U.S. Marshals Service Hawaii Fugitive Task Force arrested today in Kahului a Montana man wanted on various sex offenses.
The Marshal's Office said Joseph Lee Guseman, 31, of Glendive, Mont., had posted bail in June and fled Montana before investigators could arrest him on more serious charges tied to allegations that he sexually assaulted a 14-year-old girl.
Guseman was arrested at a Glendive home on June 21 on three counts of criminal obscenity, marshals said.
He was later charged with four counts of sexual intercourse without consent of a minor, and four counts of sexual abuse of a children. But Guseman reportedly had posted bail and fled Montana before he could be arrested on the more serious charges, marshals said.
U.S. marshals tracked the fugitive to Maui and at 11:15 a.m. today, Guseman was arrested by deputy U.S. marshals, Maui police officers and state sheriffs at a Kahalui home without incident.
He was scheduled to be sent back to Montana for an extradition hearing.
