PASO ROBLES - Hours after wanted sex offender, [name withheld] was arrested, part of his family reacts by speaking out and says he's not who you think he is.
"He did not touch his nieces and nephews, he has never touched my children, he has never touched his other sister's children either," says [name withheld]'s brother-in-law, [brother-in-law name withheld].
[brother-in-law name withheld] says his brother-in-law and registered sex offender, [name withheld] is not the monster that he's being portrayed as.
"The allegations of dozens are absolutely not true, and his single mistake is something that is hard to overcome," says [brother-in-law name withheld].
[brother-in-law name withheld] says he's not denying the fact that [name withheld] is a registered sex offender, but won't go in detail about it.
"I'm not condoning anything that's wrong and I definitely am not condoning running from the law, but what I am saying he is still a person," says [brother-in-law name withheld].
[name withheld] went missing about a month ago after he failed to appear in court but Sheriff's Deputies tracked him down early Thursday morning inside a Paso Robles home and arrested him.
[brother-in-law name withheld] tears up and says,"as hard as it is, we are grateful he is alive."
As for [name withheld]'s aunt, she's upset with the image that law enforcement is making him out to be.
"Made him out to be monstrative, just incredibly dangerous, he's not...it's one, I think actually small mistake," says [name withheld]'s aunt.
[name withheld] is in custody booked for questioning in San Luis Obispo County Jail.
