Man wanted on sex assault charges arrested at Dulles

CHANTILLY, Va. — Customs agents at Dulles Airport have arrested a Maryland man wanted on charges of sexually assaulting a 15-year-old girl.

Twenty-five-year-old Justin Ray Dutcher of Chester turned himself in Monday after returning on a flight from Turkey.

According to the Queen Anne County Sheriff’s Department, Dutcher, who owned a martial arts academy, allegedly engaged in a sexual relationship with a girl he met while teaching.

He had been free on bond and scheduled for trial in August.

His lawyer, Daniel Rosendale, said his client panicked and fled the country but quickly reversed course and arranged to return and face charges.

Rosendale expects to arrange a plea in the case, which he says involves a consensual relationship with a girl who was a few months from Maryland’s age of consent.
