Convicted sex offender arrested for online activity

Raymond Rowland, 25, accused of failing to report internet activity

SAN ANTONIO – A convicted sex offender has been arrested again after allegedly failing to notify authorities of his activities on the internet.

An arrest warrant affidavit stated that San Antonio police recently had been made aware that Raymond Rowland, 25, had set up several social networking sites without reporting it.

Among them, they said, were two different Facebook pages as well as a profile on a site that caters to people with sexual fetishes, the affidavit stated.

Rowland was convicted in 2011 of the aggravated sexual assault of a 5-year-old boy.

As a convicted sex offender, he is required to check in with authorities annually and notify them of his home address and place of employment for the rest of his life.

The affidavit stated that Rowland also is required to report any internet activity.

He was arrested Wednesday on charges related to violating the sex offender registration rules while he was on probation.

Rowland was booked into the Bexar County Jail with bonds totaling $60,000.
