CALIFORNIA BRIEFING / SAN FRANCISCO

Convicted child molester arrested

November 18, 2008|Associated Press

A former Roman Catholic priest and convicted child molester is in jail after allegedly being on the run for more than two years.

Federal authorities say Wilputte Sherwood, 63, a priest in Phoenix before his conviction on child sex charges, was arrested Sunday as he was leaving a San Francisco church.

Authorities say he was on the lam after failing to report for probation in 2005 after his release from an Arizona prison, where he served a 10-year sentence.

Sherwood faces extradition proceedings for his return to Arizona.
