A Tippah County man who has been on the run for 10 months after being convicted of sexual battery of a child last February was apprehended yesterday in Colbert County Alabama.
Derric Mcdonald was convicted on February 12, 2018 of sexual battery and exploitation of a child and he has been on the run from authorities after not reporting to jail following that conviction.
He was picked up near Tuscumbia Alabama yesterday and held until today when he was picked up by the MDOC.
Mcdonald is currently registered as a sex offender with the state of Mississippi.
No word yet on what additional charges will be leveled since he did not report to serve his sentence.
