Accused child molester Kenneth Dustin Grant was re-arrested in Mexico last week, after a four-year run from the law. The Forsyth father of two was living under an assumed name in Guadalajara. He escaped to Mexico in 2010 just before going on trial for allegedly assaulting his teenaged babysitter and photographing the crime.
A Forsyth County man accused of crimes including aggravated child molestation and sexual battery, was apprehended in Mexico after a four-year investigation.
Kenneth Dustin Grant, who failed to appear on charges of aggravated child molestation, aggravated sexual battery, child molestation and sexual exploitation of children, was located by the joint efforts of the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office and U.S. Marshals Service deputies in Guadalajara, Mexico where he had been living under a false name, according to the sheriff’s office.
Grant was indicted in 2009 after allegedly drugging and sexually assaulting his friend’s teenage daughter who was babysitting his children almost a year prior, reportedly taking pictures. Police said photos of other girls were found, including of the girl’s older sister being assaulted.
He posted $75,000 bond in January 2010 and failed to show up for his hearing in September. His ankle bracelet was found tampered with in Lake Lanier. Officials said Grant has been featured on America’s Most Wanted, which was crucial to the case.
Working in conjunction with law enforcement and immigration services in Mexico, Grant was taken in and transported to Los Angeles where he is being held until he is extradited back to Georgia, authorities said.
