AZ Child Molester Arrested in Germany After 11 Years


TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — A convicted child molester wanted in Tucson has been arrested in Germany after evading authorities for 11 years.

The U.S. Marshal's Service says 49-year-old Frank Karl Hertel remains in the custody of German authorities while awaiting extradition to the U.S.

They say Hertel was arrested Friday.

He reportedly was living in Useriner-Muehle with his wife and child and running a bar and grill under his brother's name.

Authorities secured a provisional arrest warrant from German courts to apprehend Hertel.

The Pima County Superior Court issued a warrant for Hertel in August 2000 after he fled the U.S. during his Tucson trial.

He was tried in absentia in 2001 and found guilty of sexual conduct with a minor under age 15.

Authorities say Hertel also is facing rape charges in Ohio.
