Bristol Twp. sex offender reports sexual abuse in Texas, arrested

Posted: Tuesday, April 29, 2014

A Bristol Township registered sex offender missing since November was located in Texas after police say he contacted police there alleging he had been sexually assaulted.
Thomas Boyer was living in an Austin homeless shelter when he made the sexual assault report, Acting Bristol Township Police Chief Lt. John Godzieba said. When Austin police ran Boyer’s information through the National Crime Information Center, they learned he was wanted in Pennsylvania, Godzieba said.
The Bucks County Sheriff’s Office brought Boyer, 50, back to Bucks County, where he was arraigned Tuesday before Bristol Township District Judge Robert Wagner Jr. for failing to register with Pennsylvania State Police as required under Megan’s Law. He was sent to Bucks County prison in lieu of 10 percent of $20,000 bail.

Boyer, who was convicted of first-degree sexual offense in Maryland, is a Tier 3 offender in Pennsylvania, meaning he is considered at high risk for re-offending. He is required to appear in person to update personal information, including home and work addresses, with state police and be photographed at least four times a year for life.
Bristol Township police filed an arrest warrant for Boyer in January after learning he had been kicked out of the recovery house where he was living, according to a probable cause affidavit. It was the second time that state police lost track of Boyer.
Pennsylvania State Police Megan’s Law Unit notified Bristol Township police in September that Boyer missed his required registration appointment. When a detective visited the Croydon recovery house listed as Boyer’s address, he learned Boyer never lived there, the affidavit said.
Boyer’s whereabouts were unknown until November, when state police notified Bristol Township police that Boyer now claimed to be living on Old Spruce Lane in the township. A detective confirmed that Boyer was living at a recovery house at the address since September.
In January, state police again notified Bristol Township that Boyer failed to appear at a scheduled registration update appointment. But this time when an officer visited the Old Spruce Lane address, the house manager said that Boyer had been kicked out on Nov. 21 and he did not provide a forwarding address, court records said.
