MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The Minnesota Department of Corrections (DOC) is searching for a Level 3 predatory offender who absconded from supervision late last month.
According to the DOC, 26-year-old Jonah James Hawkins has been on fugitive status since June 27, when he absconded from supervision. He was last seen leaving his residence in Halstad.
Hawkins was convicted of second-degree criminal sexual conduct against a juvenile female. He was released from prison on April 22, 2015.
He’s described as 5-foot-5, 137 pounds with black hair and blue eyes.
