He eventually settled in Costa Mesa, where he lived with the girl for three years.
The girl, now a married woman living in Florida, told the FBI that England encouraged her to bring friends over to their house when they were no older than 10. He cut a hole in a wall and would watch them undress, among other things.
In that time he continued to molest the girl and was soon convicted of also molesting her three friends.
He fled the county before sentencing and took another name to evade the authorities. England became Steven Arthur Seagoe. The name was taken from a baby who died after childbirth. He and the girl moved to Florida under his new identity.
Years later, long estranged from England, the girl he molested through her entire childhood reported him to authorities. That's how federal prosecutors found England and brought him back to California to face sentencing for molesting those girls decades earlier. The molestation claims by his so-called daughter however, were long past the statute of limitations so he could not be charged.
He was originally scheduled to be released from a California prison last year for those decades-old convictions, but federal prosecutors in Florida charged him with taking the girl over state lines for illegal sex. He was extradited to Florida last year, charged with multiple felonies and ultimately convicted on Wednesday.
