AUSTIN -- The Lone Star Fugitive Task Force arrested a man in San Antonio Thursday morning who fled his jury trial in Caldwell County last week.
In spite of his absence, the trial for 22-year-old Pedro Javier Quintero of San Marcos continued in Lockhart. Quintero was found guilty for his role in a 2009 aggravated sexual assault of a 15-year-old female in Hays County.
“This task force is the premier example of what can be done when federal, state and local law enforcement work together focusing our resources towards a common goal.,” said Caldwell County Sheriff Dan Law.
Any further charges will be investigated by the Caldwell County Sheriff’s Office and presented to the District Attorney’s Office. Quintero will be transferred to the custody of the Caldwell County Sheriff’s Office.
