Sex offender wanted for not reporting address to law enforcement dead, officials say

SAN ANTONIOUPDATE: The Lone Star Fugitive Task Force said Jose M. Garcia, who was wanted on charges he violated terms of the sex offender registry, has died.


A convicted sex offender who served time for a sex crime that involved an 11-year-old boy is wanted on charges he violated terms of the sex offender registry.

Jose M. Garcia, 29, was convicted of aggravated sexual assault of a child when he was 16. The state’s sex offender registry shows Garcia served three years and nine months in a juvenile prison before being released. He was ordered to register as a sex offender every year until 2019.

"In 2015, a warrant was issued for Garcia's arrest, following an indictment filed with the Bexar County 379th District Court. The indictment alleged that Garcia failed to register as sex offender with the local law enforcement authority," said Deputy U.S. Marshal Chris Bozeman.

Garcia is 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighs 160 pounds. He has black hair and brown eyes.

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