GRAND FORKS (WDAZ-TV) - A convicted sex offender is back in jail after being arrested on a warrant for violation of post commitment community placement.

Police say Christopher James Midgett, 29, is being held at the Grand Forks County jail.

He was arrested at the Ambassador Motel, according to a police dispatcher.

Midgett was convicted of sexual assault in Texas as a juvenile. When he was around 12 years old, he had sexual acts with a 5-year-old girl and 8-year-old boy.

A more recent charge in North Dakota was dismissed due to lack of eveidence.

Midgett is a high-risk offender and has a lifetime registration requirement.

According to police, there are 90 sexual offenders registered in Grand Forks. Of those, 8 are high-risk. The rest are moderate or low risk or haven't been assigned a risk level.
