HAGERSTOWN - Former Hagerstown psychiatrist and convicted child molester Alan J. Horowitz was deported Sunday morning from India to the United States, where he faces charges that he violated the terms of his parole in New York.
"We met the plane at the Newark, N.J., airport at 4 a.m. Sunday and made the arrest at the gate," U.S. Marshal Gary Mattison said. "Horowitz was accompanied by representatives of the U.S. State Department and the FBI."
Horowitz was found May 22 in a seaside resort in southern India and has been jailed since, awaiting deportation to the United States for traveling under a false British passport, Mattison said.
Horowitz was being held in a New Jersey jail awaiting his return to Schenectady County, N.Y., Mattison said Monday night.
Horowitz, 60, was convicted in Washington County Circuit Court 24 years ago of the sexual assault of two brothers, then ages 12 and 8, according to Herald-Mail reports in 1983.
