Soldier arrested for alleged sex crime as he returned home

By Associated Press

LAST UPDATED: 03:43 p.m. HST, Dec 13, 2012

The U.S. Marshals Service says it arrested an Army soldier who had just returned to Hawaii from deployment overseas.

Thirty-seven-year-old Shane Sanders was arrested without incident around 12:40 a.m. Thursday at the passenger terminal at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam. The Marshals say Sanders was returning from a deployment to Afghanistan, and arrested on a warrant out of Henry County, Ga., for alleged child molestation.

The alleged incident occurred in 2005 but Deputy Marshal Donna Diaz said the allegations only recently came to light. The warrant was issued in October.

Sanders will face extradition to Georgia.

Yeah, send him away from Hawaii, where all the Psuedo Perfect People live! His overseas deployment in no way exonorates him from his actions however, his call to service is appreciated. Besided, these are allegations at this point. Hawaii has their hands full with all the registered/unregistered Pedophiles on Oahu. Clean your house first before you even begin to cast judgement.

If found guilty he should be executed. One offense is one too many in these types of cases.
