EDH rape suspect arrives in county
An El Dorado Hills man who spent the better part of a decade on the lam in New York was booked into the Placerville jail last week.
Pasquale “Patrick” Senatore, 45, is accused of lewd acts upon a child and forcible rape. According to a criminal complaint filed in 2002, Senatore committed the alleged sex crimes in 1997 and 1998 against a minor under the age of 14.
Senatore reportedly fled El Dorado County in 2002 before he could be questioned by investigators. For the next nine years detectives attempted to locate Senatore but to no avail. Senatore was even named to El Dorado County’s “Most Wanted” list.
Last month reports of Senatore’s whereabouts finally surfaced.
The U.S. Marshals of New York’s Eastern District thought they had located Senatore in Staten Island. But Senatore was again on the move.
On Dec. 12 Senatore was arrested by U.S. Marshals without incident while leaving a residence in New Jersey. He was extradited back to El Dorado County and was booked into the Placerville jail on Jan. 9.
He is currently being held in lieu of $5 million bail.
Senatore is scheduled to appear in court on Jan. 27 for a bail reduction hearing.
