Curtis Regulus - Repeat Sex Offender - "I will find you"

A 38-year-old convicted sex offender was arrested Thursday morning for allegedly rubbing his crotch against a 14-year-old girl on a bus in Anaheim.

Curtis Regulus was taken into custody at 5:45 a.m. near Newport Boulevard and 17th Street in Costa Mesa, Jim Amormino of the Orange County Sheriff's Department said.

Amormino, who said one particularly helpful tip came from a bus driver, thanked the media for publicizing the case and helping "get another child molester off the street."

Regulus is charged with two counts of lewd act upon a child, according to court records. He pleaded guilty March 18 to touching an intimate part of another person and was sentenced to 180 days in jail, according to court records.

Regulus, who was freed from jail June 11, pushed his crotch against the girl as she tried to get off an Orange County Transportation Authority bus at 3:30 p.m. Saturday, Amormino said.

Around 3:30 p.m. June 19, Regulus followed a 14-year-old girl around on an Orange County Transportation Authority bus as she tried to move away from him, Amormino said.

The girl moved to the front of the bus to be near the driver, and Regulus followed her there, he said.
As she waited to exit the bus at Orangethorpe Avenue and Harbor Boulevard in Fullerton, Regulus came up behind her and pushed up against her, Amormino said. Despite her attempts to escape him, the suspect followed her off the bus, pushed up against her again and pulled her toward him by the arm, Amormino said.
The girl managed to break away and ran across the street.

Regulus allegedly shouted, "I will find you" as she ran away.

"25% of all sex offenders re-offend within 15 years"

"On average most sex offenders are never caught again for a new sex offense, after five years, between 10 and 15 percent of sex offenders are detected, often convicted, of committing a new sex offense. If you follow them for ten years the rates go up somewhat, if you follow them as long as we’ve been able to follow them, which is about 20 years, the rates go up to somewhere between 30 to 40 percent of the total sample will eventually be caught for a new sex offense."
