Scarbro man pleads not guilty to fleeing sentencing

BLUEFIELD, W.Va. -- A West Virginia fugitive captured in Florida has pleaded not guilty to failing to appear for sentencing on child pornography charges.

Media outlets report that Brett David Bowyer, 34, of Scarbro, entered his plea Monday in federal court in Bluefield.

Following the arraignment before a U.S. magistrate judge, U.S. District Judge David Faber revoked the bond Bowyer was under when he allegedly fled West Virginia.

The former Princeton Senior High School guidance counselor had pleaded guilty in October 2011 to possession of child porn and trafficking charges. Federal prosecutors say Bowyer didn't appear in federal court for sentencing in May 2012.

Bowyer was captured in Brevard County in Florida in June after he failed to move over for an officer conducting a traffic stop.
