The Texas Department of Public Safety has added Eric Lapaul Mosby, 39, to the Texas 10 Most Wanted Sex Offenders list. A cash reward of up to $5,000 is now being offered for information leading to his arrest.  All tips are guaranteed to be anonymous.

Mosby was convicted in 1997 for the sexual assault of a 14-year-old girl. Since 2007, he has been arrested multiple times for failure to register as a sex offender.
