SAN ANTONIO--An international manhunt is now underway to locate 31-year-old Anselmo Rodriguez.
Deputy United States Marshal, Christopher Bozeman said Rodriguez is the target of a fugitive investigation by the Lone Star Fugitive Task Force after he fled, awaiting sentencing by a Bexar County Judge.
Last Monday Rodriguez was convicted of sexually assaulting two children.
Instead of being taken into custody, Rodriguez was allowed to return home. Authorities said Rodriguez cut off his ankle monitor last Monday night and fled. Rodriguez was sentenced to life in prison without parole.
"We do consider him to be dangerous, " said investigator Bozeman. Bozeman went on to say the task force is widening the search for Rodriguez to include Laredo, Texas and also Mexico. "There are other countries that we are also looking at, " replied Bozeman.
