Escaped Sex Offender Surrenders to U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force

 NHJFTF LogoConcord, NH – This evening, members of the U.S. Marshals – NH Joint Fugitive Task Force arrested fugitive Brandon Scott Legere, age 32. Legere contacted the task force after he saw himself in the media and coordinated his surrender on Lowell St, in Manchester, NH with the task force.

Legere is serving part of a federal sentence for violations of supervised release, stemming from his original conviction and sentence for conspiracy to distribute cocaine. Legere is also required to register as a sex offender based on a prior conviction for felonious sexual assault on a child under the age of sixteen but older than thirteen, with an age difference of more than three years. On Wednesday evening, Legere fled the half-way house after being confronted regarding violations of the rules. Legere was last seen running down Elm Street towards Orange Street, in Manchester, NH.

Since the inception of the New Hampshire Joint Fugitive Task Force in 2002, these partnerships have resulted in over 5,523 arrests. These arrests have ranged in seriousness from murder, assault, unregistered sex offenders, probation and parole violations and numerous other serious offenses.

Nationally the United States Marshals Service fugitive programs are carried out with local law enforcement in 94 district offices, 85 local fugitive task forces, 7 regional task forces, as well as a growing network of offices in foreign countries.
