    A former Massachusetts principal and teacher has been taken into custody in Florida as a fugitive from justice on sexual assault charges in New Hampshire.

    Richard Brunt, 74, of Lakeland, Florida, was arrested June 26, according to New Hampshire State Police.

    Brunt was arraigned in the 10th Judicial Court Bartow on June 28 on multiple counts of aggravated felonious sexual assault that occurred over the past decades.

    Brunt declined to voluntarily return to New Hampshire to answer to the charges and is awaiting disposition in Florida. It's unclear if he has an attorney.

    Some Leavenworth County, Kansas, officials are calling for Commissioner Louis Klemp's resignation after he insulted a black woman who had just presented a land-use study to the commission. "I don't want you to think I am picking on you because we are part of the master race. You have a gap in your teeth. We are part of the master race, don't you forget that," Klemp said.

    New Hampshire authorities have until the end of September to issue a Governors Warrant to have Brunt moved back to New Hampshire by rendition.
