SAN ANTONIO – Less than a year and a half after he was found guilty of using the internet to have sex with a teenage boy, a convicted sex offender is accused of violating a key term of his probation: registering his address with police.
David Lee Gabler, 52, received 10 years probation for online solicitation of a 15-year-old boy. He was required to register as a sex offender each year until July 2034.
Gabler was a spokesman at the University of Texas-San Antonio when he was arrested by Alamo Heights police when he was found with the boy in his car. Police said the boy told them he and Gabler were engaged in sexual activity.
The state's sex offender registry site shows Gabler registered his address with the San Antonio Police Department days after his sentencing but has not reported to them since.
"In February 2016, a warrant was issued for Gabler's arrest, following an indictment filed with the Bexar County 175th District Court. The indictment alleged that Gabler failed to register as a sex offender with the local law enforcement authority," said Deputy U.S. Marshal Chris Bozeman.
Gabler is 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighs 165 pounds. He has brown hair and blue eyes.
"His last known place of residence was on the North Side of San Antonio," Bozeman said.
