(Original Story)

Less than one year after he was convicted and sentenced to 10 years probation for committing a sex crime against a 14-year-old girl, Derrell Reese was wanted for violating the conditions of his probation.

Reese, 39, was convicted in Oct. 2015 of indecency with a child. As part of his sentence, Reese was required to register as a sex offender annually for life. The Texas Public Sex Offender Registry lists Reese as absconded.

"In May 2016, a warrant was issued for Reese's arrest following an indictment filed with the Bexar County 290th District Court. The indictment alleged that Reese failed to register a change of address with the local law enforcement authority and absconded from supervision," said Deputy U.S. Marshal Chris Bozeman.

Reese is 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighs 200 pounds. He has black hair and brown eyes.

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