Sex offender arrested for non-compliance

From the city of San Marcos

The San Marcos police department recently completed a compliance check of all 49 registered sex offenders residing within the city, finding all but one to be in compliance with the registration laws.

Police officers visited with registered sex offenders either at home or work to confirm their addresses and employment.

Of the 49 registered sex offenders living in San Marcos, 48 were found to be in compliance. Forty two of the registered offenders in San Marcos were convicted of sex crimes involving child victims.

On Tuesday, November 25, Robert Rodriguez Flores, 43, was arrested and charged with violating Sex Offenders Duty to Register for Life-Every 90 Days. He was released on $10,000 bond.

The random compliance check is conducted twice a year to ensure that registered offenders are meeting the conditions of their release and mandatory registration requirements.

Most convicted sex offenders are required to register with local law enforcement once a year. More serious high-risk offenders, including those who have two or more reportable convictions, are required to register every 90 days.

Failing to properly register as a sex offender is a second degree felony punishable by 2-20 years imprisonment and a fine up to $10,000.

The Texas Department of Public Safety maintains a public web site for searching registered sex offenders. The site can be found at https://records.txdps.state.tx.us.
