Cincinnati, OH – The U.S. Marshals’ Southern Ohio Fugitive Apprehension Strike Team (SOFAST) arrested fugitive Jimmy Stewart today on an outstanding warrant from the Hamilton County Court of Common Pleas, Cincinnati, Ohio on a 6 count indictment charging him with Pandering Sexually Oriented Material and 9 counts of Illegal Use of a Minor in Nude Materials.
Stewart, 35, was wanted by the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office on the sex offense charges and was located and arrested by SOFAST in a residence in the Bellevue, Kentucky area.
U.S. Marshal Peter C. Tobin noted, “Fugitives wanted for crimes committed against children are always a priority of SOFAST and our partner law enforcement agencies.”
Stewart is currently in custody awaiting a court date to decide his extradition to Ohio.
Cincinnati’s SOFAST is a fugitive focused; U.S. Marshals Service led task force consisting of local, state, and federal authorities including the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office, Cincinnati Police Department, Colerain Township Police Department and the Warren County Prosecutor’s Office.
U.S. Marshals are the nation’s primary fugitive hunting organization and capture more fugitives each year than all other law enforcement agencies combined.
