A convicted sex offender who fled to Arizona rather than report to federal prison to serve a 10 year sentence for sexually abusing a 16-year-old girl, will serve an additional 18 months in prison, to run consecutive to his 10-year term.
Daniel Teed, 57, of Wexford, received the sentence Monday from U.S. District Judge Arthur J. Schwab after pleading guilty in April to failing to register as a sex offender and failing to report to the Federal Correctional Institution in Loretto, Pa.
According to information presented to the court, from October 23, 2017, and continuing through February 13, 2018, Teed, who was required to register as a sex offender failed to do so.
On January 2, 2018, Teed was ordered to surrender to the prison to begin serving his sentence. Instead he fled to Arizona, used an alias and donned a disguise. Deputy U.S.Marshals were dispatched to multiple states and eventually developed information that Teed had traveled to Flagstaff, Az. He was arrested in February by Deputy U.S. Marshals and local police as he was leaving a Super 8 Motel.
Teed was originally convicted for having sex with underage girls at so-called “sex parties” which were arranged by a former high school basketball coach. According to court documents at least one of the girls played on the basketball team.
