TACOMA -- The Department of Corrections says a Tacoma man accused of kidnapping and raping a 16-year-old girl was being monitored by GPS at the time, but the device wasn't charged.
KOMO-TV reported that Henry Hauser was being monitored by the Department of Corrections for a kidnapping and assault conviction at the time of last month's attack.
Tacoma Police report Hauser is now in jail on rape and kidnapping charges. He has pleaded not guilty to those charges.
DOC officials said it is Hauser's responsibility to keep the GPS device charged. They also say GPS units will not prevent an offender from committing a crime, but simply give the DOC workers information about the whereabouts of the offenders.
