AUSTIN – Texas 10 Most Wanted Sex Offender Dante Thompson has been named this month’s Featured Fugitive. The reward for information leading to his arrest is increased to $4,000 for the month if the tip is received in June.

Additionally, in October 2022, the Austin Police Department issued a warrant for his arrest for failure to register as a sex offender.

In 2012, Thompson was convicted of robbery and subsequently sentenced to four years of confinement in a Texas Department of Criminal Justice (TDCJ) prison. In 2017, he was convicted of sexual assault of a child following an incident involving a 14-year-old girl. Thompson received a three-year sentence of confinement in a TDCJ prison and was discharged in August 2020.
