Convicted Oregon couple face new indictment

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- A fugitive Oregon couple who failed to report for their federal prison sentences have been captured and indicted by a federal grand jury on new charges of failure to surrender.

Federal prosecutors said 48-year-old Micaela Dutson and her 53-year-old husband Tony Dutson of Tigard had each been sentenced to 10 years in federal prison on their convictions for a number of tax and financial crimes.

The Dutsons became fugitives after a judge allowed them to live with a family member in Elgin in Eastern Oregon while they were waiting to report to prison at the end of May.

Prosecutors said Thursday the couple had been arrested June 10 in Arizona in the Phoenix area. They will be returned to Oregon to stand trial on the new charges.
