LANCASTER (AP) — A U.S. Army private who escaped from military custody in Georgia while awaiting extradition to Los Angeles County, has been ordered to stand trial in the alleged rape of his 15-year-old stepsister.

According to news reports, 20-year-old Daniel Jay Brazelton was held to answer for multiple felony counts Wednesday, including forcible rape, unlawful sexual intercourse and dissuading a witness from reporting a crime. The suspect 14 years in state prison if convicted.

The case received national attention last month when Brazelton escaped from military custody while being transported after a medical appointment back to a Georgia jail where he was awaiting extradition to Los Angeles County. Brazelton was on the lam for a week before being rearrested by police in Daytona Beach, Fla.

    I know this dude has a lot of mexican friends and always spent most of his time hanging out with those mexican fellas. Before he joined the military, he was a straight A student and had a stable girlfriend. His life got changed the other way around as soon as he started out with mexican, latino, hispanic fellas. What a bad influence and sad story.
