The man—Frank Szeles, allegedly a.k.a. Frank John Selas—had originally been charged in Louisiana with sexually abusing a number of children he’d met through his role as a local kids’ TV host named “Mr. Wonder.” He’s believed to have been in California since 1985. From the AP:

The man who faced a San Diego judge Wednesday denied he is the 76-year-old fugitive named Frank John Selas III who allegedly fled to Brazil in 1979 after Louisiana authorities secured a warrant for his arrest. Back in Louisiana, Rapides Parish Sheriff’s Office investigators are convinced the right man is in custody. Meanwhile, officials in California are suddenly facing fears that Selas could have preyed on other children during the 37 years that he eluded capture.  READ MORE HERE
