JACKSON — British authorities are seeking extradition of a man in Mississippi on charges of sexually abusing a young girl in 1988.
U.S. District Court records say Barry Willoughby, 45, was taken into custody in Biloxi, Miss., on Oct. 17 on a warrant from Bradford, England, for charges of indecent assault and gross indecency with a child.
John Weber, Willoughby’s lawyer, says Willoughby maintains his innocence. Weber says Willoughby is a British subject living legally in Mississippi.
Willoughby is being held pending a Nov. 15 extradition hearing in federal court in Gulfport.
The hearing will determine whether there is sufficient evidence to sustain the charge and whether it is an extraditable offense.
The case would then go the State Department for a final decision on whether Willoughby would be returned to Britain.”
