Va. Child Molester on Most Wanted List Captured

June 2, 2010

A man convicted of molesting children in Virginia who was on the U.S. Marshals list of 15 most wanted fugitives has been caught in California.

Marshals say 73-year-old Paul Clouston was arrested Tuesday in Merced, Calif., where he had been working as a maintenance man in a group home. The arrest followed a viewer tip to the "America's Most Wanted" television show.

Clouston was convicted in 1973 of second-degree murder in the death of a California police detective, and released from prison in 1982. In 1991, the Pennsylvania native pleaded guilty to seven of 17 counts of sexually abusing children in Williamsburg. Paroled in 2005, Clouston failed to register as a sex offender in Virginia and left the state.
