An alleged American paedophile who has been on the run from the FBI since 2007 has been found leading a double life in a quiet country village.
Roger Giese, 40, fled the US eight years ago just as he was about to stand trial charged with sexually abusing a 13 year-old boy from 1998 until 2002.
The former choir master disappeared after allegedly draining his then wife’s bank account.
Since then, he has been a target of the FBI’s wanted list.
Now Giese has been exposed as leading a secret life in the village of Broughton, Hampshire, under a fake name – and even works for a PR company serving the likes of travel company Thomas Cook.
Ironically, after being arrested by British police earlier this year, a judge declined to allow him to be send back to the US.
He is now fighting to stay in the UK, claiming it would be a breach of human rights to send him back for a trial.
In Orange County, California, is wanted for trial on 19 counts of allegedly committing ‘lewd acts’ with a child with a foreign object.
