Federal officials say a fugitive from Hudson County has been arrested in Honduras.
They say 48-year-old Gregorio Martinez, a former pastor and deacon at seven churches in Hudson County, was caught last week following an 18-month search.
Martinez was convicted last year of sexually assaulting a 13-year-old parishioner of his church.
He was also wanted on additional sex assault charges in a separate case.
