NACOGDOCHES COUNTY, TX (KTRE) -

A Nacogdoches man who is a registered sex offender was picked up by DPS Thursday on a charge of failing to register correctly.

Sheriff Thomas Kerss said Melvin Liggins, 51, was brought to the Nacogdoches County Jail on Thursday on a November warrant of sex offender's duty to register.

Kerss said it was not clear in the report what Liggins had done wrong, but the charge indicates he either did not register his address or notify the office of a change of address or work address.

Liggins was convicted in 1979 for sexually assaulting a nine-year-old girl.
