Judge orders kidnap, assault suspect to stay in custody

BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) — A federal court magistrate says the man charged with kidnapping a woman and her 5-year-old son in New Hampshire and later sexually assaulting the woman in Vermont must stay in custody.

Everett Simpson, wearing a red prison jumpsuit, appeared in court Tuesday where Judge John Conroy agreed with prosecutors who argued there was no way to protect the public and guarantee Simpson would appear for future court appearances.

Simpson is charged with leaving a Bradford drug abuse treatment center Jan. 4 and traveling to Manchester, New Hampshire, where the alleged kidnapping took place. He is then alleged to have brought the woman and her son back to Vermont, where the woman was assaulted.

Police said Simpson then fled to Pennsylvania where he was apprehended after crashing a stolen car.
