Tampa, Florida -- A former Manatee County Sheriff's Office Deputy, wanted for capital sexual battery in Florida, has been arrested in Alaska after 20 years of avoiding prosecution.

Joseph Keenan May has been living under the identity of a stepbrother, Michael Camp, who died in his teens in the 1970s in Pennsylvania. May is a former deputy sheriff in Manatee County, Florida.

May will be arraigned before a federal judge in Anchorage at 2:30 p.m. on Friday.

The indictment includes charges of two counts of unlawful use of a Social Security Number, stemming from May's use of Camp's name and number to apply for an Alaska driver's license in 2009 and unemployment benefits in 2013. He is also charged with aggravated identity theft. May faces up to 12 years in prison on the federal charges in Alaska.

He potentially faces the death penalty in Florida.
