Area business owner, William Joseph LeRoux Jr., 47, of Hodgen, was scheduled to appear in LeFlore County District Court today as part of the conditions for being released on a fugitive bail. The bail was set after LeRoux was arrested on a grand jury indictment from Maricopa County Arizona for 12 counts of sexual misconduct with a minor. LeRoux refused to sign extradition to return to Arizona in October and was released on a fugitive bond while Arizona obtained a governor's warrant.
With LeRoux's appearance in Arizona, the LeFlore County case was subsequently dismissed as he is no longer considered a fugitive.
LeRoux is scheduled to appear in Maricopa County Superior Court in January for a pretrial conference.
