BOSTON (WHDH) — An Andover man convicted of child rape was arrested Friday in Farmingdale, Maine, several days after fleeing his trial, officials confirmed.
Stephen Corbin, 38, of Methuen, was arrested by members of the U.S. Marshals Maine Violent Offender Task Force, according to Massachusetts State Police. Corbin was in Maine after the Massachusetts State Police’s Violent Arrest Division learned he may be staying at an apartment building in Farmingdale, authorities said.
According to police, Task members arrived at the residence and arrested Corbin after he pulled over in the passenger seat of a car.
Corbin fled Middlesex High Court in April after being convicted of eight counts of child rape and removed his GPS tracker before his sentencing. He now faces charges of being a fugitive from justice and a felony of possession of a firearm.
Corbin is scheduled to be sentenced in connection with the eight counts of child rape on Thursday, May 12.
