BALTIMORE, MD – A fugitive wanted for the sexual assault of three children will soon be returning to Baltimore County to face justice.

Following his hospitalization, James Weems Jr., has waived extradition. He remains in custody in Washington D.C. Weems is expected to appear before a Baltimore County Court Commissioner next week.

Last week, an arrest warrant has been issued for 57-year-old James Weems Jr., after allegations surfaced that Weems sexually abused at least three children while working at a daycare facility located in Owings Mills.

Baltimore County detectives began to investigate Weems earlier this month after they were notified of the abuse. Weems faces multiple charges. He currently was hospitalized in police custody in Washington D.C.

After his release, he was remanded to police custody by the D.C. Metro Police Department.
