DENVER – The El Paso County Sheriff’s Office and Colorado Bureau of Investigation are looking for Colorado’s No. 5 most-wanted sex offender.

Brendan Phillip Camous, 23, is wanted out of El Paso County for failing to register as a sex offender. He was charged with failing to register in February 2015 and the sheriff’s office obtained a warrant for his arrest.

Camous was convicted in April 2014 on sexual assault on a child charges that stemmed from his November 2013 arrest. He was originally charged with further crimes in the case, but entered into a plea deal in which he pleaded guilty only to the sexual assault on a child charges.

A judge sentenced Camous to 90 days in jail and supervised probation.

Camous also pleaded guilty to driving while ability impaired in June 2014 after he was arrested just weeks after pleading guilty to the sexual assault charge. He failed to appear in court for a subsequent hearing on that charge as well.

Court records show a woman filed a temporary protection order against Camous on the behalf of her then-13-year-old daughter in November 2013 – just days after his original arrest on the child sexual assault charges.

Camous is described as a white man who stands 5-foot-8 and weighs approximately 150 pounds. He has brown eyes and brown hair.

Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS or the CBI 24-hour hotline at 303-239-5732.
