PORTLAND -- United States Marshals said that Logan Storm, convicted of child porn possession but awaiting sentencing, was booked into the Multnomah County Detention Center Thursday afternoon.

Mexican authorities captured Storm, 37, on March 12, months after he removed an ankle monitoring device and fled Oregon while awaiting his sentencing.

Storm was deported from Mexico and returned to the U.S. on March 21, according to Deputy U.S. Marshal Eric Wahlstrom. He will appear in federal court Friday at 1 p.m.

"Storm denied his identity, claiming he was someone else," Wahlstrom said. But investigators were able to confirm his identity and bring him back to Portland.

In August of 2010, Storm was indicted for encouraging child sexual abuse after images of child pornography were discovered on his computer. He was later convicted of child porn possession. In addition, he was indicted by a Multnomah County grand jury and charged with two counts of sexual abuse for incidents in 2007. Storm now also faces a new federal indictment for failure to appear.

At a January 29 hearing, a judge ordered that Storm be monitored electronically instead of being held until his April sentencing. The next day his monitoring bracelet was found dumped at a Troutdale park.

Storm had been a teacher at Stoller Middle School before resigning in 2011. He was arrested later that year after returning to Portland on a flight from Amsterdam.
