HOMEWOOD, Ala. (WIAT) — We first told you the story in April of this year–convicted child molester Lionel Lopez was getting out of prison soon, and the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office told us he put down a bench in Patriot Park as his address.
50-year-old Lopez was in prison since 2013 for molesting an 11-year-old girl and released in May.
We featured Lopez in June on our Tracking a Predator segment with the Sheriff’s Office, as they were looking for him then for failure to register. Officials believe he may be in the West Homewood area.
Lopez is 5’5″ and weighs 135 lbs. He has brown eyes and black hair. If anyone knows of his whereabouts please contact the Homewood Police Department at (205) 332-6200.
