The Texas Department of Public Safety has chosen a convicted sex offender with ties to Houston as this month’s featured felon and is offering a bigger reward.

For this month only, the reward for Johnny June Mason Jr., 48, one of Texas’ 10 most wanted sex offenders, has been increased to $8,000 for information leading to his capture. Mason is wanted for failure to register as a sex offender and for parole violation, according to DPS. 


He has ties to Houston, which was his last known address, and to Louisiana, including the Baton Rouge and New Orleans areas. In 1990, he was convicted in Louisiana of aggravated rape and aggravated crime against nature involving a 16-year-old girl. He was sentenced to 20 years in prison.
