LOS ALGODONES, Mex. - A man wanted in Oregon for sexual abuse charges was arrested in the Desert Southwest.

Mexican Police arrested Jimmy Gene Hale who was wanted in Oregon for sexually abusing kids under 14-years-old.

Authorities say the 57-year-old fled to Mexico to avoid prosecution.

But U.S. authorities, with the help of Mexican Police, were able to track the sex offender's whereabouts and bring him to justice.

Hale is in Imperial County Jail where he awaits extradition to Oregon to face criminal charges.
