Rapist who fled from jail captured
John MacCormack: Express-News
After a week on the lam, with scores of law enforcement officers in South Texas looking for him, twice-convicted rapist Abel Morin Jr. was back behind bars Wednesday, facing a charge of escape.
Morin was being held in Duval County Jail in Alice.
"Mainly, we caught him before he did something else. From Day One, our concern was for the community."
"The best thing is that no one got hurt. It's a lesson. It's an eye-opener," Alarcon said of the escape.
