A former Maine prosecutor who was on the run for nearly three weeks was ordered held without bail after his first court appearance in New Mexico Monday.
50-year-old James Cameron was arrested by U.S. Marshals Sunday morning at a convenience store in Albuquerque.
The U.S Attorney's Office say Cameron is expected to be returned to Maine after a detention hearing, which is scheduled for Tuesday.
Cameron was convicted of child pornography charges two years ago and was sentenced to sixteen years in prison.
He had been out on bail while he appealed but lost part of that appeal three weeks ago.
Authorities say that same day Cameron cut off his court-ordered electronic monitoring bracelet and took off in his car.
