Tino Barrios Mug 720

Tino Barrios, 54, accepted a plea deal this week in federal court for failing to register as a sex offender. 

In 1992, Barrios, also known as Rolando Zuniga Barrios, was convicted in Minnesota of criminal sexual conduct with a 13-year-old victim.  He was sentenced to more than 7 years.

In March of 2017, Barrios completed a form in the state of Minnesota stating his new address would be in the 1300 block of 40th Street in Lubbock.  However, according to federal court records, once he moved to Lubbock he failed to register.  

In June of 2017, a police officer located Barrios as part of a sex offender compliance check.  He was reminded that he was supposed to register in Lubbock within 24 hours of arriving in Lubbock.  

In July, investigators with the U.S. Marshals Service questioned Barrios.  He denied living at the address in Lubbock, but other family members said he lived in Lubbock for several weeks, according to court records. 

As part of his plea deal, Barrios admits he failed to register.  He will be sentenced at a later date to no more than 10 years in prison.  

As of Friday, Barrios was held in the Lubbock County Detention Center.
