      A Mission woman is back behind bars after being accused of violating the terms of her probation for sexually abusing a 15-year-old boy.

      U.S. Deputy Marshals arrested 33-year-old Melissa Ann Hinojosa at a home on Jonquil Avenue on Friday.

      Investigators told Action 4 News Hinojosa was originally arrested back in April 2012 after being accused of having sex with a 15-year-old boy.

      A state district judge sentenced Hinojosa to five years probation and required her to register as a convicted sex offender.

      Deputy marshals reported that Hinojosa was unemployed and arrested for theft prompting the judge to revoke her probation.

      Authorities searched her home and found her hiding in a bedroom.

      Hinojosa is back behind bars at the Mission City Jail. A court date was not immediately available.
