LOCKPORT, N.Y. (WIVB) - Paul Turley, who was convicted in absentia of molesting two young girls, has been caught by U.S. Marshals after spending nearly a month on the run.
Turley, 47, went missing during jury selection for his trial in Niagara County on January 24. The Dunkirk man, his wife and their two dogs haven't been seen since.
Sources tell News 4 that late Friday, Turley was apprehended out-of-state by U.S. Marshals. No other information about Turley's capture has been released, including the whereabouts of Turley's wife, Diane.
The sheriff's office will hold a press conference with the U.S. Marshals at the Federal Court House in Buffalo on Saturday. We expect to learn more details then.
Turley's trial continued without his presence, and the jury was never told why he was absent from court. Turley was convicted of molesting two children, each who were around 6-years-old at the time, back in the 1990s.
