Were you ever able to find out more information? Can you tell me if he was ever accused/suspected of this kind of behavior while in Ireland?

Man gets two years for assault on child

EAST BROOKFIELD — After skipping out on his probation in 1996 and spending time working in Europe, a former Spencer man will spend the next two years behind bars.

Paul J. Arcouette, 53, who once lived on R. Jones Road in Spencer, was convicted in 1995 of one count of indecent assault and battery on a child under 14 years old. At that time, a charge of indecent exposure was dismissed.

One year after being convicted, Mr. Arcouette, who was on probation, asked the court to terminate his probation and the required sex offender counseling so he could leave the country and take a job as a chef in Germany and live with his brother. His request was denied on May 1, 1996, and later that day he boarded a plane and left for Germany.

A warrant for his arrest was issued and he was arrested in an airport in another state last month. Details of the apprehension were not available and calls to the state Probation Department were not returned.

In court yesterday, Mr. Arcouette’s lawyer argued for leniency and said he has reunited with family members, one of whom offered to get an apartment with him. Probation Officer Susan H. Engle said her office opposed any extension of Mr. Arcouette’s probation and indicated he should be incarcerated.

He was sentenced to 2 years in jail.
