BEAVER (WVVA) - The former Princeton High School counselor who fled the state before being sentenced on a child porn conviction has been returned to West Virginia.

Brett David Bowyer was booked into Southern Regional Jail on Tuesday.

Bowyer eluded law enforcement for more than year after failing to appear for his sentencing hearing in Bluefield on May 30, 2012.

He was arrested last month after a traffic stop in Brevard County, Florida.

He was indicted by a federal grand jury shortly after his capture.
