BLUEFIELD, W.Va. -- A Fayette County man jailed for 10 years on a federal child pornography charge will serve another year in prison because he didn't appear at his sentencing hearing.
Brett David Bowyer, 34, of Scarbro, pleaded guilty in September 2013 to failing to appear for sentencing as required. Bowyer's sentence was handed down today by Senior U.S. District Judge David A. Faber, according to a news release from U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin's office.
Bowyer is a former counselor and coach at Princeton High School, who was featured on "America's Most Wanted" after he didn't show for his sentencing hearing on May 30, 2012.
A couple of weeks later, Bowyer was arrested in Florida. According to reports at the time, Bowyer failed to change lanes to make room for a police cruiser. He gave police in Florida a fake name, but was identified with a handheld fingerprint scanner.
