ODESSA - A sex offender may have tried to make a new life for herself in the Basin but her past quickly caught up with her.
31-year-old Elizabeth Carter was arrested on Tuesday for not registering as a sex offender in Odessa.
Carter was convicted of sexually abusing a 12-year-old boy back in 2005.
Carter has lived in different areas of Texas, but once she got to West Texas, she failed to tell law enforcement she was in the Basin.
