Fugitt has a prolonged felony historical past. In 1986, he pleaded guilty to indecent liberties immediately after he experienced frequently assaulted, choked, and threatened a minor woman for 8 decades. The assaults began when the target was just 7 decades old.
Later on, in 1991, Fugitt was once again convicted and sentenced to seven several years in prison for molesting two very little girls. He was then categorised as a Amount 3 offender, which implies that he is most possible to re-offend.
