Colorado Lawyer Nabbed in Costa Rica


William Hunsaker, a Colorado lawyer who jumped bond last year on Larimer County sex assault charges, has been nabbed by the FBI in Costa Rica.

William J. “Billy” Hunsaker, Jr. failed to appear in Larimer County Court last September on the six charges. He was accused of sexual assault against an 11-year-old Fort Collins girl and her 9-year-old brother, according to police. Hunsaker allegedly used the Internet to meet a Fort Collins woman and then sexually assaulted both of her children, police said. The mother is in prison after pleading guilty to one count each of aggravated incest and pimping of a child.


Special agents of Costa Rica’s Diplomatic Security aided the FBI in the capture, bringing their total number of arrest assists this year to 25 . Costa Rica is no longer the safe haven it was in financier’s Robert Vesco’s day.
