Dangerous Sex Offender May Still Be In Texas

Updated: Monday, August 4 2014, 05:13 PM CDT

He is among the top ten most wanted sex offenders in Texas. And if you help catch him, you could get a reward of up to $3,000. His name is Charles Leon Carr.

The Lone Star Fugitive Task Force is trying to track him down. Agents say 57-year-old Carr is a dangerous sex offender who could still be in Texas.

He's spent most of his adulthood in and out of the criminal justice system.

Supervisory Deputy U.S. Marshal Hector Gomez says, "His crimes have certainly waivered from theft, providing false identity, sexual assault and now he's in a flight system."

He's also been convicted of smuggling undocumented immigrants over the border.

In 1976, a jury convicted Charles Leon Carr of sexually assaulting a 10-year-old child in a park. A judge sentenced him to a 99 year term.

"In approximately 1987, Carr was released to parole supervision. Between 87 and now he had been in an out of prison on various parole violations," says Gomez.

Carr was last seen in Austin. His last known address on the 6000 block of Wheless Cove in East Austin.

"He fled the area in 2009, and consequently has not been seen since '09," says Gomez.

But he could be anywhere.

Supervisory Deputy U.S. Marshal Hector Gomez says Carr may be armed and has violent tendencies.

Gomez says, "Carr has tattoos on both his arms, upper arm of skulls, daggers and a rose that are obvious. Other than the fact that he has baldness at the top of his head, he's 6 foot, rather slender and he does have surgical scars on his knees."

If you have information on Carr's whereabouts you're asked to call the Texas DPS tipline at 1-800-252-tips (8477).
