Two Texas’ top 10 most wanted sex offenders back in custody
AUSTIN, Texas (KWTX) - Two of Texas’ 10 Most Wanted Sex Offenders are back in custody following their arrests on November 9.

Looney was convicted of burglary of a habitation in 2016, and subsequently received two years of probation. In 2018, he was convicted of indecency with a child by exposure following an incident with a 10-year-old boy, for which Looney received four years of probation.

In 2016, he was convicted of sexual assault of a child following an incident with a 15-year-old girl and he was given 10 years of probation. That probation was later revoked, and in 2017, Smith was sentenced to three years of confinement in a TDCJ facility.
Smith had been wanted since December 2022, when a warrant was issued out of Nueces County for his arrest for failure to comply with sex offender registration requirements.
