'Most-Wanted' Convicted Sex Offender Caught in Houston

Authorities said a twice-convicted sex offender on the Texas 10 Most Wanted list has been captured in Houston.

The Texas Department of Public Safety on Thursday announced the arrest of 58-year-old Jerry Wayne Adaway of Houston.

Investigators said Adaway, who was captured Tuesday, was wanted for failure to register as a sex offender. He had been on the run since April 2015.

Records show Adaway in 1982 was convicted of raping a 16-year-old girl in Harris County. He was convicted in 2007 of sexual assault of a 16-year-old girl in Travis County.

Officials said Adaway also has convictions for robbery and possession of a controlled substance.
