Loudoun Indicts East Coast Rapist

From Jim Plowman:

Leesburg, Virginia –  A Loudoun County Grand Jury returned true bills on a three count indictment charging Aaron H. Thomas with Rape, Abduction with Intent to Defile, and Forcible Sodomy.  The three felonies carry a potential punishment of three life sentences.

It is anticipated that a Capias will issue from the Loudoun County Circuit Court this week for Thomas’ arrest which should ultimately secure his return to Virginia to face trial.  Thomas is currently in custody in Connecticut on charges stemming from a 2007 attack in New Haven.  Thomas has also been charged in Prince William County, Virginia with six felonies and likely faces charges in other area jurisdictions.
