Gregg Scott

Scott is currently being held at the Bexar County Jail without bond.

On December 8, 1998, Scott was convicted and sentenced to 5 years in a Florida Department of Corrections Prison for sexually assaulting a 15 year old female. Sometime after his release, Scott relocated to the state of Texas where he allegedly failed to register as a sex offender with authorities. The Texas Department of Public Safety added Scott to the Texas 10 Most Wanted Sex Offender list 4 days ago and a $3,000 cash reward was offered for information leading to his capture.

Robert R. Almonte, United States Marshal for the Western District of Texas, states, “The law is the law. If you are convicted of the crime, you must register…simple as that.”
