Sex offender who fled Canada accused of sexually assaulting teen in Seattle

Residents of Seattle are demanding answers after a repeat sex offender from Canada was able to enter the U.S. despite a warrant for his arrest - and then, according to authorities, sexually-assaulted a 16-year-old boy.

The 48-year old, who is an American citizen, had his first court appearance today.

And, our Kyung Lah is OutFront with how this could happen.

    Talk about twisted media. All your different headlines seem to downplay one simple fact. The 48-year old, who is an American citizen.
    As sad as it is, we in Canada are quiet happy your citizen is where he belongs.
