ROSEVILLE, Minn. (AP) — A convicted sex offender who fled a St. Paul halfway house is in jail after more than a month as a fugitive.

The Minnesota Department of Corrections says 42-year-old Eugene Glaraton was taken into custody about 1 p.m. Wednesday in Roseville. He’s being held in the Ramsey County Jail.

Authorities learned Glaraton was in an apartment complex and apprehended him there.

The Corrections Department says Glaraton cut off his electronic ankle bracelet and disappeared from the halfway house Feb. 20, just days after his release from the state prison in Lino Lakes.

Glaraton had been incarcerated for failing to register as a sex offender, his second such conviction since 2007. He was convicted in 1987 of raping and fondling a 15-year old boy.

    cival commitment: Used to put away persons who will re-offend. Prison case workers often give input to a court if a person can be released or should remain in a sex offender program for the rest of their life. A seasoned case worker is not fooled by these kind of criminals who often fool most people into thinking thqt they are all better…when they are not.

      Why waste hundreds of thousands of dollars on useless therapy for sex offenders. Cut off the johnson and they will have a constant reminder of their sick crimes. Or how bout the death penalty and we can rid the world of their useless carcass

        Like Sharai Laws or Nazi Eugenics?

        Women with moustaches like that Idea because of what Freud says about them having Envy for the male body part.

  3. Victim Du Jour says:

    Sex Offenders re-offend on Purpose, because it’s easier than trying to apply for a job and finding a place to live.

    The sex offense registry is ditzy, and makes sex offenders more dangerous.

  4. Bob Smee says:

    Got all the way to Roseville in a month. That’s one sly criminal there.

  5. Robert says:

    Why do you say Nazi Eugenics? Read up on Eugenics see what countries also had the same practices before you speak, Want some advice ? It’s better to keeo you mouth shut and look like a fool, then to open it and prove it.

    1. Victim Du Jour says:

      Fake fear doesn’t give the government a blank check to do anything they want.

      Ben Stien has a movie called Expelled, and it talks about the “action T-4 program in Germany.

      So maybe you should do more homework.
