A local man wanted for multiple counts of child molestation was located in Montana and is now in custody in the San Luis Obispo County Jail. 

An arrest warrant was issued on April 29, 2021 for David Paul Wilson, according to the Sheriff’s Office, for multiple charges of sexual acts with a child under the age of 10, aggravated sexual assault of a minor, and lewd and lascivious acts with a child under the age of 14. It’s believed the abuse happened during the span of several years. 

Wilson fled the area before the arrest warrant was issued and was unable to be located. 

On July 28-2023, the Sheriff’s Office was notified that Wilson was living in the Helena, Montana area. 

“Various details about the subject were obtained which confirmed the subject was Wilson,” said Sheriff’s spokesperson Tony Cipolla in a news release. 

Wilson was taken into custody by the Lewis and Clark County Sheriff’s Office on July-30-2023. He was later brought back to San Luis Obispo County on August 17, 2023. 

The Sheriff’s Office thanks the Lewis and Clark County Sheriff’s Office and the San Luis Obispo County District Attorney’s Office for their assistance in apprehending Wilson and transporting him back to this jurisdiction.
