Extradition upheld for cop accused of rape

NASSAU-It’s been 18 years since Nyahuma Bastian was accused of beating and raping his former college sweetheart.

Today an appeal court ordered the 44-year-old fugitive extradited to Texas to face trial.

He was attending the University of North Texas in April 2001 when he allegedly ambushed, beat and raped his ex-girlfriend.

Bastian stayed ahead of the law for nine years until it was discovered he was working, unbelievably, as a cop in his native Bahamas.

Bastian, one of the U.S. Department of Justice’s 10 most-wanted sex offenders, was arrested on the job in June 2010 on the extradition request.

His lawyer Murrio Ducille said he plans an appeal to the Privy Council, the country’s highest court.
