Fugitive sex offender found as patient in Harlingen hospital

A woman sex offender who failed to report she had moved is expected to face judge after being found as a patient at a hospital in Harlingen.

San Benito police arrested 40-year-old Danette Moreno Keith for violating sex offender registration laws.
