Sex Offender Is Recaptured

October 15, 2003|From Associated Press

BRIDGEWATER, Mass. — An escapee from a sex offender treatment center was captured on a street Tuesday after authorities searched for more than a day, officials said.

John McIntyre was arrested by Bridgewater police about 7:30 a.m., according to state police.

McIntyre, 40, was committed indefinitely to the Massachusetts Treatment Center in 1984 in lieu of a conviction. He was charged with indecent assault and battery on a child younger than 14, rape and abuse of a child younger that 16, kidnapping and larceny.

He escaped late Sunday night from a special unit. Corrections officials said McIntyre had been a good inmate, but classified him as a danger to the public.
