Sex Offender Arrested
 
 
 
On June 20th, 2019 Detective Christopher Perryman
obtained an arrest warrant for Eusebio De Jesus Lopez on the charge of a sexual
offender-failure to report to the Levy County Sheriff’s Office his intent to
leave the country.  His bond was $100,000.
On 7/22/1993 Lopez pled no contest on charges of Lewd and Lascivious Assault on
a child less than 16 years of age (4 counts). 
As a result of the plea, Lopez was required to register as a lifetime
registered sexual offender in the State of Florida.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) and United
States Marshal Service notified Detective Perryman of Lopez’s planned
international flight. During his investigation Detective Perryman learned that
Lopez had flown out of Orlando International Airport on June 18th,
2019 and arrived in Honduras on the same date. 
Det. Perryman confirmed Lopez did not notify authorities of his travel
itinerary.

On July 16th, 2019 Lopez arrived at the Orlando
International Airport and was immediately taken into custody by the United
States Marshal Service Fugitive Task Force and the Department of Homeland Security.
He was interviewed by Det. Perryman and admitted that he was aware as a sex
offender he needed to notify law enforcement of his international travels and he
chose not to. He said he had traveled out of the country previously, without
notifying law enforcement.

The Levy County Sheriff’s Office greatly appreciates the
assistance provided by the U.S Marshals, FDLE, and The Department of Homeland Security
in this case.  Their cooperation was an
essential component in this investigation.
