Former WJAC-TV (6) weatherman Jay Patrick is now facing theft charges, according to the Tribune-Democrat.

Patrick (whose real name is James Holcomb) was charged last week with stealing $7,500 from a landscaping contractor for which he was working.

The 43-year-old was convicted in 2004 of sexual assault and related offenses. The victim was 6 years old at the time of the assaults.

Patrick fled the United States before his sentencing but was recaptured in the Ukraine earlier this month. He was remanded to Cambria County Prison last week.

Police have also charged Patrick with escape, forgery and receiving stolen property. Preliminary hearings will be scheduled on those charges; a new date for Patrick’s sentencing on the assault charges has not yet been set.
