MERCER COUNTY, WV (WVVA) -

A Mercer County man indicted on 127 counts of sexual assault and sexual misconduct of two family members is caught in Louisiana. 

Clifford Robinson, 40,  of Princeton was arrested Monday morning in Baton Rouge by the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force. 

Robinson was indicted in Mercer County back in June on 41 counts of second degree sexual assault, 42 counts of incest, 41 counts of sexual abuse of a minor by a parent or guardian, and 3 counts of use of obscene material with intent to seduce a minor.

"Robinson will appear before a judge in Louisiana and will likely be held pending extradition back to West Virginia," according to a news release issued by the U.S. Marshals Service, Southern District of West Virginia.

The alleged crimes took place over a two year period. Both victims were female.
