Number 1 TX Sex Offender Arrested In Montague County

- A Texas man considered the number one most wanted sex offender in Texas is now in custody.

Sheriff Paul Cunningham said, after being on the run for nearly six months he turned himself in to the Montague County Sheriff's Office Friday.

28-year-old Randy Jay Hofsetter was wanted on several parole violations and failure to register as a sex offender.

On July 8th, he was placed on the Texas Department of Public Safety's "10 Most Wanted Sex Offenders" list, with a reward of up to $5,000 dollars.

In January, a probation violation warrant was issued for Hofsetter out of Hopkins County, in connection with his conviction in 2009 involving an 8-year-old girl, on three counts of sexual assault of a child. Later that month the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles issued a warrant for parole violation for delivery of methamphetamine.

Sheriff Paul Cunningham said he is back in the Hopkins County Jail.
