BOULDER, Colo. — Just over a week after failing to show up for a sentencing hearing, the Colorado Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has fast-tracked Calvin Nagy to the top of the state most-wanted sex offender list.

Already a convicted rapist, Nagy was convicted a second time in November. This time, a jury found the 37-year-old guilty of sexual assault — a Class 4 felony — along with other charges in November.

Prosecutors asked Boulder District Judge Andrew MacDonald to rescind Nagy’s bond of $7,500, which he had posted to remain free during his trial. The judge denied the request.

Nagy, who lives in Vail, was required to check-in daily with community justice services as a condition of his bail. Officials said he stopped doing so the week before his sentencing, which was scheduled for Feb. 6.

Nagy’s bond has been revoked and a warrant for his arrest has been issued. Meanwhile, the CBI has placed Nagy on top of its recently-update list of Colorado’s 100 most-wanted sex offenders.

In addition to the sexual assault conviction, a jury found Nagy guilty of misdemeanor charges including third-degree assault, attempted third-degree assault, criminal mischief and menacing. Nagy was previously convicted of sexual assault in Boulder in 1996 and was sentenced to probation in that case.

Nagy faces up to life in prison for his most recent convictions. Prosecutors said they wanted to Nagy in spite of his absence last week, since it is not necessary for a defendant to be present at a sentencing hearing. However, the judge postponed the sentencing hearing indefinitely.

“The judge may have well found that even though this is a sex assault conviction, and terrible, that the community would not be in jeopardy if he let the defendant stay out until the sentencing,” attorney Dan Recht told FOX31 Denver.

MacDonald was also the judge in a case of George Tiba who failed to appear on the final day of his trial in December. Tiba was arrested in California several days later.
