RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - After three years on the U.S. Marshals "most wanted fugitive" list, a man convicted in Virginia of sexually assaulting children is back in custody.

73-year-old Paul Clouston is wanted by Virginia State Police for failing to register as a sex offender.

He pled guilty in 1991 to seven charges related to the sexual abuse of children in the Williamsburg area.

Clouston reportedly disappeared after he was paroled in 2005. He was arrested Tuesday in California.

In 1973, Clouston was convicted of killing a police officer in California.
