Lesley Pehrigo, sex offender arrested for violating parole conditions


Lesley N. Pehrigo, 38-year-old registered sex offender residing in Hays County, Austin, Texas, has been arrested for violating parole conditions by having contact with her victim.

According to online sex offender records, Pehrigo was sentenced to prison for 10 years for sex acts she committed against a four year old child in 1999. After serving her sentence prison Pehrigo was placed on parole. Pehrigo violated the terms of her parole by having contact with the victim who is now 17. As a result, a corresponding parole violation warrant was issued by the Texas Department of Criminal Justice on March 7. The Fugitive Unit arrested Pehrigo on March 8, and she was booked into the Travis County jail.

The Texas Board of Pardons and Parole will decide whether Pehrigo’s parole will be revoked, or whether she will be retried, resentenced or have additional charges added, Durdin said.
TDCJ officials are not releasing much information and said details behind the alleged contact are “confidential” and would not provide a probable cause affidavit.
Durdin said Leslie Pehrigo’s imposed conditions included, “sex offender registration, sex offender program, prohibition on internet access for certain sex offenders, reside in legal county of residence, alcohol and drug testing, child safety zone, no contact with victim (and) post secondary education reimbursement.”
Texas Attorney General Greg Abbot created the Cyber Crimes Unit in 2003, which is aimed at protecting children from online sexual exploitation, according to their release. The Cyber Crimes Unit and the Fugitive Unit, which locates sex offenders who have violated the terms of their parole, have combined to arrest more than 2,100 child sex predators, the release stated.
