A sex offender wanted in four states has been arrested in Canada and was turned over to US Marshals at the Pembina Port of Entry. 55-year-old Francis Sherman was arraigned Wednesday on a federal warrant for knowingly failing to update his sex offender registration. Sherman is originally from Peoria Illinois. He has two prior convictions- one in 1981 for rape and a 1998 charge of a deviant sexual assault on a 15-year-old boy in Missouri. The US Marshals have been hunting for Sherman since 2009. He was arrested by Canadian Mounties on September 7th in Carberry, Manitoba.
