PROVIDENCE â€” A man awaiting trial on Burrillville police charges of child molestation was recaptured here Wednesday after a week on the lam from home confinement, the state police said.
Robert Spaulding, 34, surrendered after State Police searched for him at his motherâ€™s house and the homes of other relatives and friends.
â€śHis trial was coming up,â€ť said Detective Commander Michael J. Winquist of the state police. â€śI guess he thought he wasnâ€™t going to be there.â€ť
