Authorities conduct compliance check on Nacogdoches Co. sex offenders

Posted: Updated:
NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) -

Early Friday morning, the Nacogdoches County Sheriff's Office, the U.S. Marshal Service, the Texas Department of Public Safety, and the Adult Probation Office teamed up to conduct a verification check on the 84 registered sex offenders in Nacogdoches County.

The law enforcement officials conducted the checks on the registered sex offenders to make sure that all of them were in compliance.

"As of right now, we expect at least three warrants to be issued for failure to comply with sex offender registration, which is a felony offense," Nacogdoches County Sheriff Jason Bridges said in a press release.

In a press release, Nacogdoches County Sheriff Jason Bridges said that of the 84 sex offenders registered in the county, six of them will require a follow-up investigation.

Bridges said that the NCSO will continue to conduct random checks on Nacogdoches County's registered sex offenders to make sure they are compliance.

"These checks are conducted to send a message to all sex offenders that they will be arrested if they are found in violation of their probation agreement," Bridges said in the press release. "Normally, an offender has strict rules tied to their release, which can include a specific location in which they are allowed to and designated to live. If they are found to be living somewhere other than that location, or if they violate any other aspect of their release agreement, then we will obtain a warrant for their arrest."

Weeks of planning and coordination among the agencies went into Friday's compliance check, Bridges said. Officers from the various agencies were divided into teams and given information packets on each offender they had to check.

Bridges said information gathered by those teams will be sent to the investigators responsible for the follow-up checks on the offenders that aren't in compliance. After the follow-up investigations are done, warrants will be sought for the offenders found to not be in compliance.
