Derrick Dion Christopher, 38, described by the Texas Department of Public Safety as a high-risk sex offender, has been added to the state's list of the 10 Most Wanted Sex Offenders.
Christopher, last seen in Fort Worth, is well acquainted with the criminal justice system. In 2007, he was accused of sexually assaulting an 11-year-old girl in Tarrant County, though the charge was later reduced to indecency with a child, according to DPS. But his charges date back more than a decade. In 1994, Christopher was convicted of deadly conduct after discharging a firearm. In 1995, he was sentenced to five years in prison on a drug charge. He was paroled in 1998. Later that year, he was again arrested on a drug charge and sentenced to two years confinement and five years probation. In 2000, DPS reports that he heated a bottle cap and burnt the tops of two juveniles' feet bad enough that they needed hospital treatment. He was sentenced to five years in prison related to that account.
In 2010, the Fort Worth Police Department issued a warrant for his arrest for Failure to Register as a Sex Offender. Up to a $3,000 reward is offered for his capture. Call 1-800-252-TIPS (8477) with information on Christopher.
