Cuba Deports American Fugitive Sought On Allegations Of Child Sex Abuse

HAVANA (AP) — Cuba says it has turned over to the U.S. an American fugitive sought on charges of sexual exploitation of a minor.

Leonard B. Auerbach, of Oakland, California, also is being sought on accusations of possession of child pornography.

The Cuban foreign ministry says Auerbach was arrested on the island on May 7, acting on information from U.S. officials.

Cuban authorities say the investigation showed that Auerbach arrived on the island on April 8 and was deported on Friday. Such cooperation is unusual between the U.S. and Cuba, which have no extradition treaty.
