A man has appeared in court after failing to turn up for a previous hearing where he was convicted of rape.
Mohammed Saleem Hussain will be sentenced in August
Mohammed Saleem Hussain, 38, of no fixed address, was hunted by police after failing to appear at trial.
He was convicted of raping a Solihull woman, 27, in his absence following a trial at Birmingham Crown Court last year. He has not been sentenced.
Hussain has been remanded in custody to appear at Birmingham Crown Court in the final week of August.
Police said he would be sentenced for his rape convictions.
But they said it was not yet known if he would face a new charge of failing to appear in court for the sentencing hearing.
Hussain, previously of Kings Heath, Birmingham, was found guilty of rape. A sick note was produced on the last day of his trial at Birmingham Crown Court and he did not return to court.
Police later asked the public to help trace Hussain, a married father-of-two, and they believed he was still in the city.
