A convicted sex offender who fled Rhode Island is now back in police custody.

U.S. Marshals say Luis Ortiz was found working at a Days Inn in Columbia, South Carolina.

Ortiz was convicted back in 2000 of sexually assaulting a 16-year-old Pawtucket girl. After he was released, he was supposed to register as a sex offender, but he never did. He disappeared after being released on bail.

He is now being sent back to Rhode Island to face charges.
