JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - The Hinds County Sheriff's Department has arrested Owen Bullock and charged him with Failure to Register as a Sex Offender and Violation of Probation.
Hinds County deputy Charles Robinson was on patrol in Terry last Friday, when Bullock flagged him down. He told Robinson he wanted to turn himself in because he'd seen his picture on several television stations.
The Sheriff's Department released pictures of five unregistered sex offenders living in the county late last week. Two are now in custody.
The 51-year-old Bullock is being held at the Raymond Detention Center without bond.
Bullock was convicted in Illinois of one court of Criminal Sexual Assault and one count of Criminal Assault with Force.
