AUSTIN - The Texas Department of Public Safety says one of the state's most wanted sex offenders turned himself in at a border checkpoint in El Paso because he did not want to be arrested by authorities in Mexico.
Juan Alfredo Gandarilla, 43, who has family in El Paso, was wanted since 2005 for failing to register as a sex offender and parole violations. He's considered a high-risk sex offender considering his conviction for molesting a 9-year-old girl.
