Sex offender with ties to NE San Antonio wanted for violating court-ordered rules

Lorenso Bustos, 43, required to register as sex offender for life

SAN ANTONIO – It's been nearly 14 years since Lorenso Bustos was convicted of crimes that required him to register as a sex offender. A state website that lists those offenders shows Bustos has failed to do that since 2004, an allegation that has since led to a new criminal charge filed against him.

"In 2003, Bustos was sentenced to time in prison on charges involving indecency with a child through sexual contact and was later ordered to register as a sex offender," said Deputy U.S. Marshal Chris Bozeman.

The Texas Department of Public Safety's sex offender registry site shows Bustos, 43, is required to register as a sex offender for life. It says he registered in July 2003, then verified his address in August 2004. It also lists him as absconded.

Now Bustos has been indicted on a charge of failure to comply with sex offender registration conditions.

He is 5 feet 4 inches tall and weighs 140 pounds. He has black hair and brown eyes.

"His last known place of residence was on the Northeast side of San Antonio," Bozeman said.
