REDMOND, OR -- One of Redmond’s most wanted fugitives is back in custody. Michael Tallman – a.k.a. Michael Bremont – had been on the run since October, when he failed to appear for a hearing related to new sex abuse charges.
Information developed by the FBI’s Bend field office led a Fugitive Task Force to the Paducah, Kentucky area, where the convicted sex offender was found in an RV. He allegedly climbed out a window and tried to run from officers but was arrested. It’s unknown when he will return to Deschutes County.
Tallman was convicted in 2012 of several sex crimes stemming from relationships he had with two Redmond Proficiency Academy students, the charter school he helped found, and once directed. The latest charges stem from another victim who reported she was abused several years ago.
