NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - A Nacogdoches judge will be issuing an arrest warrant for Jose Guadalupe Nava, who pleaded guilty on Sept. 24 to sexually assaulting an 11-year-old girl. Nava didn't show up for his sentencing hearing Friday morning.

Originally, jury selection for Nava's trial was set in District Judge Campbell Cox's court. However, Nava pleaded guilty to aggravated sexual assault of a child.

The incident was reported to the Nacogdoches Police Department in March 2011, and Nava was booked into the Nacogdoches County Jail the next day.

Police withheld further information to protect the victim's identity.
