NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -
A man wanted in connection with child rape charges in Williamson County was taken into custody Sunday by U.S. Marshals in California.
Wendell Lee Washam, 82, was arrested at the LAX Airport yesterday after he arrived on a flight from Australia. He is being held in Los Angeles awaiting extradition.
Washam was wanted by the Williamson County Sheriff's Office for failure to report for trial, two counts of rape of a child, solicitation to commit rape of a child, aggravated sexual battery, solicitation of sexual exploitation of a minor and sexual exploitation of a minor by electronic means of a minor.
He was scheduled to appear in court on Dec. 3, 2012 to enter a guilty plea in the case and failed to appear. He was later added to the Top 10 Most Wanted list later that month.
