American ‘paedophile’ on the run from the FBI is discovered leading double life in English village

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.
