Jefferson County District Attorney Bob Wortham has a message for unregistered sex offenders looking for a place to hide: Stay away from Southeast Texas.

Gas for $10 a gallon, water for $99 a case, phantom homes for lease or sale, sheetrock installed for approximately the price of a new kidney. Jefferson County District Attorney Bob Wortham says he’s heard it all. What he hasn’t heard, however, are that any police reports are being filed with his office charging suspects with those allegations – at least not yet.
