In 2000, Brack was convicted of involuntary deviant sexual intercourse for which he received a sentence of 15 years. This conviction required him to register as a convicted sex offender. On February 24, 2016, the Pennsylvania State Police obtained an arrest warrant for Brack charging him with failure to verify address/being photographed which is a violation of Meganís Law.

The U.S. Marshals worked jointly in this investigation with members from the Pennsylvania State Police and the Scranton Police Department.

The U.S. Marshals Service is the federal governmentís primary agency for fugitive investigations and arrests approximately 300 fugitives every day, or about 110,000 every year.
