JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A Jacksonville man with multiple felony sex crime convictions has been sentenced to civil confinement.
38-year-old Terry Wayne Busler has been labeled as a sexually violent predator.
In 1996, Busler was convicted of Lewd Lascivious Act - Sexual Battery on a 12-year-old girl. In 2000, he violated his probation and was sentenced to five years in prison. Then in 1999, Busler was adjudicated guilty on one count of Sexual Activity involving a 16-year-old girl.
