Man convicted of sex crime against teen accused of violating sex offender rules

Jacob Tovar, 25, wanted for failing to register as a sex offender

SAN ANTONIO – A San Antonio man convicted for committing a sex crime against a 14-year-old girl was supposed to register as a sex offender each year until 2034. Law officers say he hasn't done that.

Jacob Tovar, 25, was convicted in 2014 of indecency with a child by exposure. He was sentenced to 10 years probation and required to register as a sex offender.

"In 2015, a warrant was issued for Tovar's arrest, following an indictment filed with the Bexar County 187th District Court. The indictment alleged that Tovar failed to register as a sex offender with the local law enforcement authority," said Deputy U.S. Marshal Chris Bozeman.

Tovar is 6 feet tall and weighs 120 pounds. He has black hair and brown eyes.

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