TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Border Patrol agents in Tucson say they have arrested a previously convicted child sex offender as he allegedly tried to illegally re-enter the United States.

The agency reported Wednesday that its agents arrested the man Tuesday evening near the isolated border crossing of Sasabe, about 75 miles (120 kilometers) west of Nogales.

A records check showed that 31-year-old Mexican national Moises Bautista-Ortiz had been convicted of child molestation in Maricopa County Superior Court in January 2013 and was sentenced to life probation.
