Idaho is once again earning some national attention as a former Idaho legislator has been taken into custody in the State of Georgia.

You may remember the name, Aaron von Ehlinger. The 39-year-old man was accused of sexually assaulting a 19-year-old intern at the Idaho Statehouse. While at this moment, we do not know what he was doing in Georgia, we do know that since early September, the Ada County Sheriff's Office has had a warrant out for his arrest tied to the assault. The charge--rape. A felony.

After standing on an ethics committee hearing earlier this year, Aaron von Ehlinger resigned from his position with the Idaho State Legislature. The Ethics Committee also found that he had a history of "poor behavior" with other women in the statehouse.

At this time, it isn't clear when the former lawmaker will be brought back to the State of Idaho for arraignment however if he is eventually found guilty, he could be locked up in prison for life and/or be required to register as a sex offender.
