PHOENIX A fugitive priest who was captured in Mexico last month and returned to the United States is now back in Arizona to face sex-related charges.
Joseph Briceno was booked Tuesday into the Maricopa County jail after being flown in from California, where he has been held since his arrest, a sheriff's spokesman said. Briceno waived extradition.
Briceno was indicted in Arizona in 2003 on six counts of sexual conduct with a minor, one count of attempted sexual conduct with a minor and one count of sexual abuse.
