Richland PD confirmed Aguilar is a level one sex offender.

He was convicted back in the late 90's in Kansas for a crime known as "indecent solicitation of a child." The website indicates various aliases for Aguilar, but Richland PD could not confirm those.

Aguilar is due back in Benton County this week.
