A child predator in Los Angeles is awaiting extradition back to Virginia. William Martin had been on the run for 18-years and is now in police custody. He was arrested in a Los Angeles homeless shelter. Martin was convicted in 1989 of violently sexually assaulting three female relatives under the age of ten while babysitting in Isle of Wight. He was released early from prison in 2000, but Martin skipped probation and quickly disappeared. US Marshals say he made a mistake that led them to him.
