Judge Julie Goodman rescheduled the convicted rapist's arraignment for Thursday after he refused to leave his jail cell Wednesday, according to authorities.

John Buckley IV is accused of leaving his rape and sodomy trial last July in Lexington. 

After a 10 month nationwide manhunt, the former Army Ranger was captured in Laramie, Wyoming in May.

Buckley fought extradition, but was returned to Kentucky on Tuesday on a plane normally used to transport the goveror since Buckley was considered a flight risk.

Buckley's new charges include bail jumping, tampering with a monitoring device, and contempt of court.
