HOUSTON, TX - Just hours after being put on the Texas 10 Most Wanted Sex Offenders list, a sex offender was captured at a home in Houston.
Michael Cox, 46, was arrested thanks to a tip called into the Texas Crime Stoppers hot line. DPS added the violent sex offender to its most wanted list after Cox failed to register as a sex offender.
In 1994, Cox was convicted of aggravated sexual assault of a 9-year-old girl in Dallas County. He served 10 years in prison.
