Fugitive sex offender is arrested in Mexico
Darrell Craig Sinclair, 66, has eight convictions for lewd acts on a child and has been wanted for nearly a decade, the Riverside County district attorney's office said Thursday.
He was arrested Tuesday by U.S. marshals near Guadalajara. Sinclair was declared a "high-risk" sex offender in the 2000 by the U.S. Department of Justice, authorities said.
Sinclair has one conviction in 1976 in Los Angeles County and seven convictions in 1983 in Orange County, authorities said.
In December 2002, prosecutors in Riverside County filed a criminal complaint against Sinclair after he allegedly failed to comply with sex-offender registration requirements.
A former Menifee resident, he was scheduled to be arraigned Thursday at the Hall of Justice in Riverside.
