The Texas Department of Public Safety on Friday announced Johnny June Mason Jr. was caught Tuesday at a condominium complex in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. His last known location had been Houston.
Authorities say the 48-year-old Mason was wanted for parole violation and failure to register as a sex offender.
Records show Mason in 1990 was convicted in Louisiana of aggravated rape and aggravated crime against nature involving a 16-year-old girl. He was sentenced to 20 years in prison.
Investigators say Mason, who’s been a fugitive since last June, has a history of violating parole and failing to comply with sex offender registration requirements.
