Convicted sex offender on run nabbed in Dothan

By  | 

Dothan (WTVY)-- A woman convicted of sex crimes involving children in Pennsylvania and apparently on the run from law enforcement was arrested in Dothan. Heidi Marie Harbarger, 42, was wanted for failure to comply with sex offender registration laws.

An arrest warrant shows Harbarger was charged Tuesday as a Fugitive from Justice. She was placed in the Houston County Jail without bond.

Media reports indicate she had been on the run since 2014. The Pennsylvania sex offender database shows Harbarger’s status as “absconded.”

Harbarger was found guilty by a Greene County, Pennsylvania jury in October 2005 of two counts of sexual abuse of children and one count of corruption of a minor, per the Observer-Reporter newspaper.

She was sentenced to 18 to 36 months in prison and ordered to register as sex offender.

Her Dothan address was listed at an East Main Street hotel.
