A Man Appears in Court For Sex Crimes After Fleeing the Country

Posted: Updated:

The man accused of fleeing the country to avoid felony charges for a sex crime, has now appeared in district court.

Yesterday, Jeffrey Wenzel, an ex- soldier of the Montana Army National Guard, was ordered to be held on a $1 million bond. He was originally charged in June of 2012 for a felony sex crime against a minor and two counts of sexual child abuse.

According to an affidavit, Wenzel was a no show to his January 22nd trial and instead flew to Europe. That's when he contacted his wife saying he was convinced he would not get a fair trial. Because he left town, he now faces an additional charge for bail jumping.
