Hillary’s fugitive fund-raiser is no longer a fugitive:

A top Democratic fundraiser wanted as a fugitive in California turned himself in Friday to face a grand theft charge.

A judge in San Mateo County Superior Court ordered Norman Hsu handcuffed and held on $2 million bond. A bail hearing was scheduled for Sept. 5, at which the judge will consider reducing his bail to $1 million.

Hsu appeared in court here Friday following reports that he had skipped his sentencing on a 1991 grand theft charge. In the ensuing years, he became a top donor to numerous Democratic candidates, including presidential contenders Hilary Rodham Clinton and Barack Obama.

Ed Morrissey corrects the AP:

The AP has this incorrect. He already pled guilty to the charge; he’s being held for sentencing. In 1992, he agreed to serve a three-year sentence. Hsu will probably face more time for his flight to avoid prison.

How long will it take for the Paw and Lee families to raise the $200,000 necessary for a bond to spring Hsu?

Here’s the statement from Hsu’s lawyer:

In response to media and other inquiries, Jim Brosnahan, attorney for Norman Hsu and a partner at the law firm of Morrison & Foerster issued the following statement: “The 15 year old legal matter that Norman Hsu has is moving toward resolution. We arranged for him to appear in court and put up monies for bail, which can also be used for restitution to any persons who might still be unpaid. We have had productive preliminary conversations with the Attorney General’s office concerning resolution of this old matter. “
