A former teacher at an elite school in Massachusetts has been returned to the United States from Thailand to face child rape charges.
According to the Boston Globe, after a night of drinking with a close friend, Buono confessed to molesting the student. The friend the confronted Buono who later fled to Southeast Asia where he had remained ever since.
Most recently he was living in Thailand and was arrested by the Royal Thai Police on the instruction of the authorities in the United States.
Now back in the United States, Buono will stand trial on three counts of child rape and three counts of rape of a child with force.
“We owe our partners in federal law enforcement – and in Thailand – substantial thanks for their diligence and perseverance,” Norfolk District Attorney Michael Morrissey said in a statement.
“This has been a very involved process and we are relieved to have these charges now ready to be brought forward for arraignment in the Norfolk Superior Court.”
Investigators say that Buono could have abused up to 18 boys during his time at the Milton Academy.
It was not revealed if Buono had been working as a teacher while in Thailand.
