Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott unveiled a new crime-fighting tool to track down suspected child predators.
Abbott, who made the announcement Monday at a news conference at Vidaurri Park in San Antonio, said a new cyber crimes unit has been surfing the Web looking for criminals who prey on children.
The unit has already arrested nine men who had been previously convicted of child-sex crimes for violating their parole, Abbott said. Posters of the suspects were displayed on an easel.
"If you violate your parole, we're coming after you," Abbott said. "We're going to track you down. We're going to arrest you. And we're going to put you right back behind bars where you belong."
The cyber crimes unit is funded with grant money from the state's criminal justice division.
