Escaped sex offender arrested at casino

ROGERS, Ark. (AP) - A man wanted in Arkansas on child sex charges has been arrested in Oklahoma after escaping from custody in Missouri.
The Benton County sheriff's says U.S. marshals arrested Richard Lawrence Rogers as he left a casino in Tulsa.
Rogers is considered a Level 4 sex offender - the highest level in Arkansas. He's wanted in Benton County for sexual indecency with a child and failure to comply with registration and reporting requirements.
He was arrested Feb. 26 in McDonald County, Mo., - but escaped after being taken to a hospital.
The Arkansas Sex Offender Registry calls Level 4 sex offenders those who exhibit sexually violent predator behavior.
