As mentioned previously, the US Marshals have been mighty busy lately. Between protecting judges, and securing fugitives, they've been in the news more in the past few weeks than they had been in the previous decade. I think it's worth reporting that Jesse James Hollywood is being held in custody by Marshals after being extradited to the U.S. from Brazil. Kevin Roderick has the best summary of events that I've seen thus far.
Jesse James Hollywood has been returned to Santa Barbara after being tracked to coastal Brazil and arrested. Authorities say he was being supported there by $1,200 a month sent from his parents. Hollywood went on the lam five years ago after being charged with kidnapping and murder in the killing of 15-year-old Nick Markowitz, who was from West Hills in the Valley.
