East SA sex offender wanted for violating court-ordered registration requirements

Warrant issued in February for Israel Cedillo Jr., 58

SAN ANTONIO – A judge ordered Israel Cedillo Jr. to register as a sex offender for life back in 2010. Cedillo was supposed to report his home address to law enforcement officials, but is now accused of failing to do that.

Authorities have been looking for Cedillo, 58, since February when a warrant was issued for his arrest for failing to comply with the sex offender registration conditions.

"In July 2007, Cedillo was indicted and charged for sexual assault. He was later sentenced and ordered to register as a sex offender," Deputy U.S. Marshal Chris Bozeman said.

The Texas Sex Offender Registry lists Cedillo's victim as a 43-year-old woman. It shows Cedillo he reported to the San Antonio Police Department in 2011, but his current status is "absconded."

Cedillo has brown hair and brown eyes. He is 5 feet 6 inches tall and weighs 130 pounds.

"His last known place of residence was on the East side of San Antonio," Bozeman said.

If you have any information on his whereabouts, call the Lone Star Fugitive Task Force at 210-657-8500.
