Man accused of sex crimes due in court
Thirty-six-year-old Dallas Lockhart of Akron is expected to be arraigned in Akron Municipal Court this morning on 19 separate criminal charges, including two counts of rape of a three-old girl.
A Summit County grand jury indicted him Friday on charges of rape, attempted rape, gross sexual imposition, child endangering and pandering obscenity involving a minor.
The former Akron real estate attorney had been on the run for nearly a year.
He was arrested in California shortly after being featured on a segment of America's Most Wanted. The television show aired June fourth.
According to Akron police, Lockhart fled Akron in August 2004 soon after learning his home computer was in the hands of detectives. Lockhart allegedly first fled to New York and later to California.
