LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

A convicted child molester is back in jail after violating terms of his probation.

Angelina County Adult Probation Supervisor Dustin Fore said Edgar Castillo Martinez chose the option of going to a lockdown facility to address his transgressions, in the hopes of not having future violations.

Fore said Martinez chose the option instead of facing a revocation hearing, where he could have been sent to prison.

Martinez was put on probation in March 2010 after pleading guilty to sexually assaulting a 13-year-old girl.
