Indictments in East Coast Rape Case

by Associated Press posted Apr 3 2012 8:05PM
  WASHINGTON (AP) - A man suspected in a series of sexual assaults up and down the East Coast has been indicted in Virginia and could stand trial this summer.
     A grand jury in Prince William County, Va., returned an indictment Tuesday charging Aaron Thomas with abducting three teenage trick-or-treaters on Halloween 2009 and raping two of them.
     Commonwealth's Attorney Paul Ebert said the indictment includes two counts of rape, three counts of abduction with intention to defile and three counts of use of a firearm during a commission of a felony.
     A trial is scheduled for July 31.
     Thomas was arrested last year in Connecticut and had been held there on charges connected to a 2007 sexual assault. But Connecticut officials agreed to extradite him to Virginia to face charges there first.
