Man wanted in Kentucky caught in Maine

WILTON, Maine (AP) - Police in Maine have apprehended a man wanted in Kentucky on sexual abuse charges.

Wilton Chief Heidi Wilcox says officers arrested 44-year-old Jaime Johnson at a relative's home in town on Wednesday night.

Maine authorities were tipped off by Kentucky State Police, who say Johnson is wanted on 15 counts of sexual abuse.

Johnson was charged in Maine as a fugitive from justice. He is being held at the Franklin County Jail pending a bail hearing scheduled for Friday.

Details of the allegations Johnson faces were not released by Maine authorities.

It was unclear if he had a lawyer.
