LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) – A Lubbock man was arrested Friday and accused of failing to register as a sex offender.
Court records say Ralph Howard Maddox, 54, pleaded guilty back in 1993 to sodomy of a child in Jackson County Missouri. He moved to Lubbock in September 2007 for a job but did not register as a sex offender.
Lubbock police say in court records that Maddox was stopped for a traffic citation earlier this year and did not pay the fine. So, an arrest warrant was issued on the unpaid citation. That's when police discovered Maddox was not registered as a sex offender.
Maddox has not yet been to federal court on an initial appearance, so he cannot post bond to get out of jail at this time.
