Austin, TX (KETK) — A Most Wanted Sex Offender from East Texas was recently arrested this week in New Orleans, Louisiana.
Jimmy Ray McMillan, 42, of Nacogdoches, turned himself into police Wednesday after he reportedly found himself without transportation or shelter following a dispute with another person. McMillan identified himself as a wanted sex offender from Texas.
The fugitive's criminal history includes the sexual assault of a 9-year-old girl, burglary, evading arrest and DWI, according to state law enforcement officials. He had been known to work in construction and carnival jobs. Since no tip was involved in the arrest, no part of the $3,000 reward will be paid.
